Auction Action by Paul Lucas of ESPN & 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 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 always like leagues that deviate from the standard black/white zebra-striped officiating uniforms. The World Football League’s blue/gold jerseys (shown at right, click to enlarge) are a prime example. Bid on it here.

• Love love love the striped collar on this 1891 (!) Cy Young baseball card. Scroll over the thumbnail to get the full effect.

• With Willie McCovey’s recent death, a bunch of his memorabilia is now up for auction. McCovey was left-handed, so it seems odd that this trophy for his 500th home run shows a right-handed batter figurine (and a righty glove to boot).

• Speaking of McCovey, I really like this 1971 All-Star Game platter. Never seen that type of item before!

• One last McCovey entry: The Giants usually styled his NOB with a raised “c,” as seen here and here, but this one has a base-aligned “c.”

• I never really noticed before how the Astros’ 1972 road jerseys had matching radially arched chest lettering and NOBs, while the ’73 design had matching vertically arched chest lettering and NOBs.

• This 1980 Reds jacket design, with the team logo down toward the bottom, is one of the oddest jacket formats I’ve ever seen.

• Speaking of jackets, check out this 1967 Earl Monroe College Division championship beauty.

• Oh baby, it doesn’t get much better than this century-old Yankees dugout sweater!

• It’s rare enough for a MLB team to have TV numbers on one sleeve. But in 1979 and ’80, the Cardinals had them on both sleeves!

• Attention, Brinke Guthrie! We don’t often see tennis gear come up for auction, but here’s a 1991 autographed Jimmy Connors warm-up top.

• I love everything about the lettering styles on this mid-1970s 76ers warm-up jacket.

1953 “Easy” Ed Macauley Game-Used & Autographed NBA All-Star Jersey

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:

• Did you know Jackie Robinson had his own traveling All-Star team in the late 1940s and early ’50s? I didn’t, until I saw this gorgeous jacket. There’s no indication that Jackie himself wore this particular jacket, but whatever — it’s magnificent.

• I love, love, love this 1912 Red Sox championship watch fob. What a beauty! (And if you’re into championship jewelry, you’ll also like this 1915 Red Sox ribbon and medallion, this 1920 Indians championship pin, and this 1926 Asheville pendant.)

• Who knew that the Dodgers had separate jackets just for rookies? Not me! Probably from spring training. Love that Skinner tagging, too.

• What’s even better than a green-trimmed Johnny Bench jersey from the Reds’ first St. Patrick’s Day game? Having that jersey with the accompanying stirrups!

• Here’s an interesting one: a 1944 “U.S. All Stars” jersey worn by infielder Eddie Joost, apparently as part of military promotional team during World War II. Note that the periods are rotated so they appear as diamonds!

• If you liked that line of college football jerseys recently launched by Ebbets Field Flannels as much as I do, you’ll love this 1960s Princeton jersey.

• I was a little surprised to see that this 1977 Willie McCovey jersey showed a raised “c” on his McNOB. So I did a bit of checking and found that, sure enough, the Giants consistently styled his name that way on a variety of different jersey styles, as seen hereherehere, and here. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any rear-view photos of him from his stints with the Padres and A’s. Anyone..?

• Here’s an inscription you won’t often see: Mickey Mantle disgustedly signed this ball at the end of a low-turnout autograph session in New Orleans with, “This is the last fuckin ball in N.O.”

• Mets fans might be interested in these two non-Mets gamers: a Jerry Koosman White Sox jersey and a Jon Matlack Rangers jersey.
