Though baseball was played at a few previous Olympics, 1984 marked the first time the game was given an extensive exhibition. Eight nations fielded a team and Team USA featured three college kids who were soon to be household names - Mark McGwire, Will Clark and Barry Larkin. This is the jersey Barry Larkin, still a student at University of Michigan, wore during the exhibition games. The Rawlings jersey has "USA" across the chest in red, white and blue tackle twill. Larkin's number "22" is sewn below in blue tackle twill. The shoulders and sides of the jersey are trimmed with red and blue ribbing and the left sleeve have "BASEBALL USA" and Rawlings patches. Rawlings size "42" label is sewn in the lower left tail. The back has "LARKIN" in blue tackle twill on a white nameplate and number "22" below in blue tackle twill. The jersey shows great game use with some staining and turf mark visible. The lettering has frayed in some places and there are some loose threads visible. Larkin has signed the front left chest in black marker . The matching pants have Rawlings size 32 label inside the waistband and another Rawlings label on the left front waist and again on the rear above the right pocket. Red and blue ribbing runs down each leg. The pants show great game use with turf and pine tar stains visible and a few snags in the fabric.
