Default Tony Horton 1966 Red Sox Jersey (G/U?)

Hey all, went to an estate sale this morning and picked up this 1966 Red Sox jersey. The organizers incorrectly listed it as a Bobby Doerr jersey online, then as a Frank Malzone jersey at the sale. Doing research beforehand however tells me that this jersey belonged to Tony Horton, who switched from #30 to #11 in 1966 after Frank Malzone was released after the 1965 season.

This is my first jersey of this era so Iím assuming it to be legit and if it belonged to Horton itís pretty interesting as a mental health professional since he had such an interesting and tragic story later in his career with the Indians.

It has a decent amount of staining so Iím not sure if it was worn by other owners over the years or if the stains come from game use. He only played 6 games with the Red Sox to start the 1966 season before getting sent down to make way for rookie George Scott. I canít imagine he was issued too many jerseys from this year. Maybe also worn in Spring Training that year?

Itís going in my personal Red Sox collection but just thought Iíd show this off and try to get some opinions from experts much more knowledgeable than me!
