In what turned out to be a lopsided trade, the Boston Red Sox sent lefty pitcher Sparky Lyle to the New York Yankees for Danny Cater and a player to be named later (which ended up being Mario Guerrero) in March of 1972. Lyle would go on to win the 1977 American League Cy Young Award and helped lead the Yankees to back-to-back World Series titles in 1977 and 1978.

Before he was dealt to New York, Lyle was a promising young lefty, who in 1968, pitched to a 6-1 record with a 2.72 ERA. This offered home button-down flannel Red Sox jersey was worn by Lyle during the 1968 season. This beautiful off-white flannel features “RED SOX” in Tuscan font sewn on in red and navy felt across the chest. Red piping runs around the collar and down both sides of the buttons. Each sleeve has two red piping stripes on the ends and the back of the jersey has Lyle’s number “28” sewn on in red and navy felt in the McAuliffe number font. The bottom front left tail has the “TIM McAULIFFE INC.”, “68” and “44” tags. Lyle has signed his name in bold black marker above the tags on the front of the jersey. This jersey displays moderate game use and is in excellent condition, combined with the bold signature of Lyle, making this a tremendous Red Sox gamer. This jersey comes with a LOA from MEARS (313012), who have graded this jersey a perfect A10 and a LOA from PSA/DNA (AC02569) for Lyle’s signature.
