After taking ROY and MVP honors in the Pacific Coast League, Denny Doyle debuted in the majors with the 1970 Phillies. He holds the distinction of having played the franchise's final season in Shibe Park and its inaugural campaign in Vet Stadium. Above all, perhaps, Doyle is remembered by Phils fans for turning double plays with Larry Bowa. His rookie-era home ensemble features a Wilson size-40 flannel jersey from 1970/71 and matching size-34 pants from 1971.
Authenticator Dave Miedema's 2011 LOA reports, "No name in collar tag was included in the jersey, likely due to Doyle being unexpectedly brought north from Florida with the Phillies, and a stock jersey being made for him. The pants carry no player ID, but are a waist size 34, and are stamped with an issue date code of DYC translating to February 1971 manufacture." The belt (but not stirrups) is also present. Light to moderate wear overall.
