California Angels 1975 Game Worn Doug Howard MLB Baseball Jersey

Size: 44 (Large)

Brand/Model: Goodman & Sons

Condition: 7/10. Some glue residue on the back where the name would have been. A but if color fading on the twill and knit cuffs on the jersey. Some minor wear, but in surprisingly good condition otherwise.

The story behind this jersey is a little unclear, but this is my best guess. The Angels wore Goodman & Sons home jerseys in this style from 1974 to 1978 except for in 1976 when Rawlings was the exclusive manufacturer of Angels jerseys. Names were confirmed to be worn on the back of Angels jerseys in at least 1975 and 1978, but these jerseys were also commonly handed down to minor leagues or used in spring training, so many of the surviving Angels jerseys from this have been altered and reused, making it hard to find out which years had names and which didn’t. This jersey was clearly stripped of its original name and number, and the outline of the name reads “HOWARD”. Doug Howard played for the Angels in 1974, a year in which they may have had names on the backs of their jerseys, but I wasn’t able to find any examples of confirmed game worn jerseys. No other Howard appeared on the Angels during this stretch. Howard is confirmed to have worn both 14 and 44 during the 1974 season, but never 57, so it’s almost certainly a jersey that was handed down and re-numbered.
