Ryan Sweeney 1970’s Throwback


Besides that black Casey Chavez jersey I also picked up this throwback from that pre-season tailgate. I happened to see some other throwback jerseys in the pile but somehow didn’t catch one of Interest until I came across this one.

The jersey was worn by Ryan Sweeney as part of a “turn back the clock” game in Tampa Bay in early 2010. That season Sweeney wore number 21 as he voluntarily gave his previous number 15 to veteran starting pitcher ben sheets who had signed with Oakland for that season. And as number 21 being one of my favorite numbers upon coming across that jersey in the pile I wasted no time getting it and adding to my collection.
