The white knit button-down garment features a black pinstripe pattern, “Sox” angled on the left breast in black-on-gray twill and “8” sewn to the back and right front in like fashion. On the right sleeve, a “Comiskey Park 1991 Inaugural Year” logo patch commemorates the venue’s opening season. On the tapered left front tail, a “Rawlings” size “48” label is accompanied by a “Set 1 1991” flap tag and a tag with a chain stitched “T” identifier. All original and unaltered, the jersey shows light wear with faint dirt stains about the upper front.
