Having endured a postseason drought of 22 long years, the Chicago White Sox shunned naysayers and put their faith in ageless backstop Carlton Fisk in a 1981 free agency signing. The moved proved to be a windfall for the ChiSox, who earned their first division crown two years later and contended thereafter as Fisk produced for the final 13 years of his Hall of Fame career. The offered White Sox road items were worn and signed by the Vermont-born backstop as he helped bring the South Siders back to prominence. Includes: 1982 Jersey a gray knit pullover garment with “SOX” sewn in white twill across the chest’s blue-and-red pattern, “72” sewn to the back in blue twill and “FISK” arched just above in like fashion. Just below the number, Fisk’s black marker autograph (“8” strength) is inscribed “82 g.” Blue-and-red striped stretch knit lines the V-neck, and the left front tail is home to a “Medalist Sand-Knit” White Sox exclusivity tag and a size “48” tag. Within the back tail, a strip tag denotes “82 FISK 48,” and an accompanying flap tag reads “2.” Unaltered, the jersey shows moderate wear from prior to that year’s All-Star break, as the club added 1983 All-Star Game patches following the ’82 break; 1985 Pants gray knit leg wear with blue-and-red trim, “72” sewn in red twill to the upper left thigh, a three-button zippered fly and (2) cotton-lined back pockets. Just below the number, Fisk’s black marker signature shows (“9”) quality. Drawstrings reside within the elasticized waistband, which is also home to a “Medalist Sand-Knit” White Sox exclusivity tag, a size “36” tag and (2) strip tags denoting “85 36Z 25” and “FISK,” Respectively. The pants show heavy wear with (2) team repairs and were subsequently worn in the minor leagues, as an illegible name is written on a strip tag. Full photo LOA from Dave Miedema (for uniform items).
