Auction Action By Paul Lucas Of ESPNs Uni-Watch

Thanks Paul! To view this post and other fine uniform related discussions head over to Uni-Watch.com

Our friends at Grey Flannel Auctions have another big auction underway. Here are my picks for some of the most interesting items up for bids:6121a__Auc41_lg

• The listing for this Rocky Colavito jersey provides as good a look as you’re ever likely to see of the Indians’ “Cleveland Sports Spirit of ’76″ sleeve patch. (As an aside, my college galpal was Rocky Colavito’s distant cousin. Unfortunately, she didn’t like baseball.)

• FNOBs are relatively rare in baseball. One of the best was worn by Angels first baseman Ron Jackson (teammate of Reggie, of course), whose FNOB was vertically arched! Here’s his game-used jersey.

• Speaking of the Angels, I like how they used a green halo for this St. Paddy’s Day jersey. Much better than making the whole jersey green.

• Holy bizolee — I’d totally bid on this amazing American Federation of Labor basketball jersey if the opening price weren’t so steep (and if I ever wore tank tops, which I don’t).

• If you look at the second thumbnail, you’ll see that the jock tag on this 1975 A’s jersey was dead-center on the shirttail, instead of over on the left side. Same thing for this green jersey from the same season. Obviously, the pullover format lets you position the jock tag anywhere you like, but other pullovers from this era — or at least the ones that I’ve seen — typically stuck with the more common left-side positioning. Was this centered placement common for McAuliffe jerseys?

• Here’s a game-worn A-Rod jersey from an All-Star tour of Japan. Never seen that sleeve patch before!

• So many patches on this Ichiro jersey: 2001 All-Star Game patch on the left sleeve, American League centennial patch on the right sleeve, and the post-9/11 American flag patch covering up the MLB logo on the back collar.

• Stargell Stars! Love the close-up of the little star patches.

• I never liked seeing the Expos’ catchers wearing red catching gear. The team’s stirrups were blue, their under-sleeves were blue, and their caps were mostly blue (even in the pinwheel era, the brims were blue, which kinda made blue the “controlling” color), so their catchers always looked better wearing blue equipment, not red equipment. If you disagree, you might be interested in this set of Gary Carter’s red gear.

• Oh baby, dig this 1936 National League All-Star jacket!

• People sometimes ask me, “Why does the Yankees’ top hat logo feature so much red when the team’s uniforms don’t include any red?” Maybe it’s because the Yankee Stadium ushers wore red!

• Love the simple boxing glove illustration on the back of this Muhammad Ali training robe.

• Oh man, how great would it be if the Rangers wore New York Americans throwbacks?

• One of Uni Watch’s simplest rules: I never, ever get tired of anything with the Dallas Chaparrals logo on it.

• Gotta love this 1926 New York Football Giants season pass. Look how the charm has a pebbled surface, just like a real football.

• And speaking of the G-Men, check out this early-1950s Giants jacket.
