Circa 1957 Wes Covington Game Worn Cleats With Family Provenance. Every baseball team needs a sparkplug to help give it a boost down the stretch. For the 1957 Milwaukee Braves the likes of Bob "Hurricane" Hazle and Wes Covington provided the team with a dose of late-season magic.

Covington's main contribution came on defense as he helped alter the World Series outcome with two game-saving catches. Sourced from the widow of Covington are these game worn "Rawlings [size] 9.5" cleats, circa 1957. Both leather cleats show season-long use. The inner portion of the tongue has "43" instituted in paint pen. A "Rawlings Fleetfoot" manufacturer's tag is sewn in the inner half of the right shoe. Letter of provenance from Covington's widow. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
