Presented is a 1974 Eddie Fisher Baltimore Orioles 20th Anniversary heavy cotton jersey that was worn in an appearance to commemorate the Birds' anniversary. Fisher was a Major League pitcher for 15 years and not to be confused with his contemporary by the same name, singer and actor Eddie Fisher. The baseball Fisher played for the San Francisco Giants (1959-61), Chicago White Sox (1962-66 & 1970-72), Baltimore Orioles (1966-67), Cleveland Indians (1968), and California Angels (1969-72). Fisher, a right-hander, was mainly a reliever. His best season was in 1965 when he was a reliever for the Chicago White Sox and led the AL in games (82), games finished (60), and he had 24 saves and a 2.40 ERA. 1966 was Fisher's better year of his two seasons with the Orioles, as he had a 5-3 record, with a 2.64 ERA and 14 saves. For his career, Fisher was 80-65, with a 3.41 ERA. The cream-colored jersey has Orioles across the chest in orange sewn-on script with black trim. Under the Orioles name is number 28 in sewn-on orange numerals with black trim. The back has FISHER in black, block sewn-on block letters. Under the player name is 28 in sewn-on orange numerals with black trim. The jersey has five white buttons down the front. On the front outside left tail is a "Brooks Robinson Sporting Goods" manufacturer's tag. There is a partially washed-out light blue stain on the front and a few very small brown stains on the front. Other than the above-mentioned minor imperfections, the jersey is in excellent condition. The jersey was not game worn, but was worn by Fisher in the 1974 celebration of the Orioles' 20th Anniversary of the team's move as the St. Louis Browns changed its city and name to become the Baltimore Orioles.
