Barry Larkin's 1984 Olympics game worn jersey. Two things to help discern legit '84 Team USA baseball gamers: first, the names on the back always used a nameplate. Second, just prior to the Olympics, Team USA went on a 37 game pre-Olympic promo tour across the US playing against local college teams. The jerseys worn on this tour had a patch on the sleeve from sponsor General Electric. Of course, once the Olympics began any corporate sponsorship on the uniforms was forbidden so the jerseys used during the Olympics did not have the GE patch. . . . . . #barrylarkin #reds #cincinnati #cincy #cincinnatireds #redsbaseball #teamusa #teamusa🇺🇸 #olympics #baseball #baseballjersey #gameused #gameworn #gameusedjersey #gamewornjersey #cooperstown #halloffame #usaolympics #usa #ballplayer #baseballhistory #baseballislife #sportsmemorabilia #olympian #olympians #america

Mark McGwire's 1984 USC game worn jersey. In the 8th Round of the 1981 Draft, McGwire was selected out of high school as a pitcher by the Expos. He chose not to sign and went to USC instead, where he pitched alongside teammate Randy Johnson. McGwire was named Sporting News College Player of the Year and went on to play for Team USA in the '84 Olympics before signing with Oakland the same year. Johnson meanwhile struggled with his control and was cut from Team USA. Johnson would spend the next several years trying to find the strike zone while McGwire set a rookie home run record in 1987. . . . . . . . #usc #trojans #usctrojans #markmcgwire #mcgwire #socal #southerncali #southerncalifornia #fighton #losangeles #la #cali #california #oaklandas #oaklandathletics #stlcards #stlcardinals #collegebaseball #uscbaseball #ncaa #ncaabaseball #gameworn #gameused #gamewornjersey #gameusedjersey #tommytrojan #universityofsoutherncalifornia #lalife #baseball #80s
