As you may have noticed in the left-hand ad rail, our friends at Grey Flannel Auctions are running another catalog sale. It includes the absolutely magnificent 1950s Syracuse Nationals jacket shown above. Everything about this jacket is awesome, from the chest logo and collar piping to the sleeve patch and interior tagging. Pretty good, right? You can see more photos and info here.
Interestingly, this catalog auction also includes a really nice jacket from the team that the Nationals eventually became, the 76ers. You can learn more about that item here.
• Lots to like on this 1968 game-used Billy Williams Cubs jersey, including the rarely seen Illinois sesquicentennial patch.
• Oh man, how awesome is this 1928 photo album prepared for Cubs manager Joe McCarthy. A very unusual item!
• Speaking of unusual, check out this 1917 Red Sox season ticket booklet.
• Love this 1970s Cal Angels jacket, which was made for owner Gene Autry. The big logo on the back is particularly nice.
• I’ve never seen an NFL sweater quite like this 1951 Doak Walker item. Note the city of Detroit 250th-anniversary patch, too!
• I like how the Gold Glove award is player- and position-specific. So if a Gold Glove winner is left-handed, the glove on his award trophy will be left-handed. And if you’re a first baseman, like 1967 Gold Glover George Scott, your trophy will feature a first baseman’s mitt.
