Taking a cue from Baltimore's Ripken family, the Alomar clan set up camp at San Diego's Jack Murphy Stadium in 1988. While the younger Alomars—Sandy, Jr. and Roberto—soon departed for greener pastures, all three simultaneously served in the Mission Valley during the late 1980s. Here offered are Padres road jerseys respectively worn by members of that baseball-minded trio. These light-brown knit button-down garments show light to moderate wear and are of the identical style. Each garment features a brown pinstripe pattern, an overlapping "SD" logo sewn to the left breast in brown-on-orange double tackle twill and the player's (or coach's) surname and number sewn to the back in like fashion. The left sleeve is home to brown, block-style "RAK" identifiers (in tribute to deceased owner Ray Kroc), while the "Wilson" manufacturer's tag resides on the left front tail or within the cotton lined collar. Includes: Sandy Alomar 1986 Coach's Jersey - number "4" w/size "42" flap tag and a swatch tag with chain-stitched notations of "4 - 86;" Roberto Alomar 1985 Signed Spring Training Jersey - number "56" w/size "40" label and an "85" swatch tag. On the left front tail, the second baseman's black Sharpie autograph projects "10" strength. (This was most definitely used in spring training, as Alomar signed in February, 1985 and was not to debut with the parent club until 1988); Sandy Alomar, Jr. 1985 Spring Training Jersey - number "46" w/size "42" label and a "55 - 85" swatch tag. Having inked his first contract in 1983, Alomar, Jr. didn't debut in the bigs until 1988, pinpointing this jersey's use to spring training.
