Larry Gardner played most of his prime in the dead-ball era, as the third baseman on several successful Red Sox teams. He helped the Red Sox to victories in the 1912, 1915, and 1916 World Series. He led Boston with 5 RBIs in the 1912 Series and hit his team’s only home run. In the famous 10th inning of the final game, the same inning that included Fred Snodgrass and Chief Meyers making critical fielding mistakes and giving the Red Sox two extra outs to work with, it was Gardner who drove in Steve Yerkes with the series-winning sacrifice fly. Gardner homered in consecutive games of the ’16 Series, including a three-run inside-the-park homer in Game 4. The two home runs matched his regular season total. Gardner played a key role on the pennant-winning 1920 Indians, leading the team in RBIs (118), games played (154) and at-bats (597). He went 5-for-24 in the 1920 World Series, which Cleveland won, 5 games to 2. Gardner was on the winning side in all four of his World Series appearances.

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:

• 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.
