Originally the remnants of the second incarnation of the Washington Senators, the Texas Rangers have since established their own identity. These (3) apparel items were issued and/or worn during the late-1970s to early-1990s. Includes:
Steve Fireovid 1992 Game-Worn Home Jersey: a white knit button-down garment with “Rangers” angled across the chest in blue-on-red twill and “60” sewn to the back and left front in like fashion. In solid blue bloc-style twill characters, “FIREOVID” is sewn atop the back number. The left front tail is home to a “Russell Athletic” size “46” label and a swatch with “29” and “1992” identifiers. The jersey shows moderate wear and was, in all likelihood, re-issued during a subsequent spring training session, as Fireovid wore number “29” with the Rangers and there is evidence of a number change on this jersey.
Late-1970s/Early-1980s Jacket: a blue satin-like button-down garment with “Rangers” arched across the chest in red-on-white “shadowed” characters with a star brand on the “R.” The waistline, collar and sleeve endings feature red-white-and-blue striped stretch ribbed knit, while the collar’s interior is home to a vintage “Loter” (an Irving, Texas outfitter) label and a size “40” flap tag. Minimal wear.
1990s Windbreaker: a blue nylon pullover garment with a team logo embroidered to the left breast. Within the 3”-wide blue stretch ribbed knit collar, an “Alpha” label has a handwritten notation of what appears to be “29” (suggesting wear by Steve Fireovid in 1992) and is accompanied by a size “XL” flap tag. Moderate wear.
