Russell Athletic size 52 alternate jersey was worn by Bob Hamelin during the 1998 season with the Milwaukee Brewers. Jersey shows nice use with slight puckering of the numbers and several loose threads. Tags are slightly faded and are just beginning to curl from repeated washings. Both tail and collar tags are present and are correct for the era.
Hamelin started out in 1993 with the Kansas City Royals, but he really exploded on the scene in 1994 with a .282 average, 24 HRs, and 65 RBI on his way to American League ROY honors. The rest of his career spent with the Royals, Detroit Tigers, and Milwaukee Brewers was less stellar and he finished his major league career with 313 hits, 67 home runs, and 209 RBI as injuries took their toll.
