Hall of Famer Jim Palmer played his entire career in Baltimore and was the ace of an impressive pitching staff that won six American League pennants and three World Series titles over the course of his 19-year career. A model of excellence and consistency, Palmer broke the 20-win barrier eight times and led the American League in wins for three consecutive seasons from 1975-77. When it came to post-season play, Palmer kicked it up even further, recording a career 8-3 record with a 2.61 ERA. "Gentleman Jim" won the first of his three Cy Young Awards in 1973 and wore this autographed road jersey while doing it, leading the team to 97 wins and a first-place finish in the American League East division. The size 42 Wilson label appears inside the collar with a team-stitched "73 Set 1" affixed to the lower left front tail. Some mild puckering of the jersey numbers is evident with light staining from use. The "Orioles 22" on the front and "Palmer 22" on the back are all sewn on in two-tone orange and black tackle twill, and Palmer has signed the jersey in black marker with a "1973 Cy Young" inscription. Palmer won 22 games that year and led the AL with a 2.40 ERA, edging out Nolan Ryan for baseball's top pitching award and finishing 2nd to Reggie Jackson for AL MVP honors. A magnificent gamer from one of the era's greatest and, perhaps, most underrated hurlers.
