I was looking through the current Mears auction and noticed the 1980-81 era George Brett game used jersey that is being auctioned.
I don't have a dog in this fight but the spacing between Kansas and City looks awfully wide compared to the 1980 WS photo they have in the listing. Not that the photo is a match but the spacing looks off to me. Is it just my eyes or does anyone else think the spacing looks wider? The first photo below is his 1981 Topps Sticker so it's from the era in question. The second card is a 1982 All-Star card. I'm guessing the photo might have been taken in 1981. Neither spacing looks close to the jersey being offered to me. Will try to dig up more pics.
