Description:
1923-24 Eddie Pick Game Worn Cincinnati Reds Jersey. Tough early style is almost identical to that worn by the Reds during their 1919 World Championship season (though a different style was introduced for the Series), but the red trim at the sleeve cuffs was only utilized from 1922 through 1929. We can narrow that range considerably, however, by the embroidered "Pick" sewn directly into the rear tail, an attribution to back-up outfielder Eddie Pick whose term of Cincinnati service was confined to 1923 and 1924.

The heavy road grey pinstriped flannel retains the gorgeous black and red felt "Reds" logo over the heart and a blank back as this style predates the advent of jersey numbers. All six original buttons remain on chest. Manufacturer's labeling in the collar has been lost to the ages, but the thread outline remains. A few minor stains do little to distract the eye, and the absence of moth damage or any other such damage to the fabric is a welcome surprise for such an ancient garment. A small amount of dye transfer from the team logo likewise is a minor concern which must be dismissed in light of the tremendous rarity and desirability of this important early fashion. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
