At the forefront for the reincarnated version of the Washington Senators, former slugger Frank Howard paced the oft-woeful franchise in home runs and RBI in each of the club's last seven seasons (1965-1971) in the Nation's Capital. The offered Senators home jersey was issued to and autographed by Howard prior to the 1972 season. This white knit button-down garment features "Senators" angled across the chest in red twill, the script-style name accented by a lengthy paraph. In like fashion, "33" is sewn to the back and "HOWARD" is arched just above. On the lower portion of the first "3," Howard's black marker signature shows ("9") quality (Howard had worn "9" for his first four seasons in Washington before yielding that number to skipper Ted Williams). Within the cotton-lined collar, a "Wilson" label has a laundry marker notation of (size) "50" and an accompanying swatch tag has a stitched notation of "72." When the Senators moved to greener pastures in Texas, this jersey was likely discarded. James Spence Authentications cert/hologram #F07329 (for autograph only).
