1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Series George Shuba Flannel Game Worn Jersey w/COA:
1955 George Shuba Game Worn Brooklyn Dodgers Jersey. "Next year" finally came for the long-suffering Bums in 1955, and they downed the hated Yanks in the Bronx in that decisive Game Seven, so this road grey flannel may have dried World Championship champagne lurking deep in its fibers. Shuba took the last at-bat of his Major League career in that contest, pinch-hitting for Don Zimmer in the top of the sixth and grounding out to first baseman Moose Skowron to end the inning.
Like most Big League gamers of the era, the garment was sent down to the minors after that greatest day in Brooklyn baseball history, and we can still discern the stitching pattern of the Ft. Worth Cats lettering on obverse, though it has since been professionally restored to its proper "Brooklyn." Number "8" on verso is original and unaltered. Interior collar holds "Rawlings Hall of Fame Flannel [size] 48" tagging, while lower left interior tail reveals washing instructions label anchoring the all-important "Set 1 1955" flap tag. Heavy wear is apparent, as expected from extended use, but a light scattering of rust stains is the only fault worthy of note. LOA from Heritage sales.
Incredibly rare jersey!
