Our friends at Grey Flannel Auctions are running another catalog auction, which means it’s time for me to showcase some of the most interesting items they’re selling. Here we go:
• I love the elegant simplicity of this cap that Babe Ruth wore during a 1934 tour of Japan.
• Love this two-tone Cardinals dugout jacket, although it would be even better if the right sleeve were navy.
• This Reds cold-weather jacket looks like a gown! Interesting to see the “Reds” inside the underline — I don’t recall seeing the Reds use that format before.
• Speaking of cold-weather attire, check out this Braves garment.
• In April of 1964, when I was about three weeks old, Arnold Palmer wore this cardigan in the Masters. What a beaut! I would totally wear that.
• I’m a little confused by this Edmonton Oilers “practice bib” — never seen anything like that before. Did these used to be common?
• Not sports-related, but I love this Baby Ruth candy bar vendor’s jacket. Looks kinda like a jockey’s silks, no?
• Hmmm, seems like there were major kerning issues with this mid-1950s Philadelphia Warriors jersey. That “A” is practically falling off of the jersey!
• Two rarities in one: The NOB on this late-1980s Sacramento Kings jersey is nameplated and beneath the number — both very unusual for the NBA.
