1942 Dom DiMaggio Game Worn Boston Red Sox Jersey.
lived in the shadow of his iconic brother, Dominic is still
remembered as one of the best outfielders of his age. Injured in
the fateful Game Seven of the 1946 World Series, DiMaggio was on
the bench as Enos Slaughter made his Championship-winning Mad Dash.
"If they hadn't taken DiMaggio out of the game
later admitted, "I wouldn't have tried it
." Presented is one
of the last jerseys worn by the Boston fan favorite just before he
undertook three years of World War II service, exhibiting solid
wear likely attributable in some degree to secondary wear as well.
Classic "Boston" stands in navy blue felt across chest, with the
beloved 1942 style "Health" patch on left sleeve. Numeral on
reverse is absent, but the outline of a number "7" in proper font
is apparent on a light table. "Spalding" and "Tim McAuliffe"
labeling is heavily worn but present in collar above a
well-preserved "D. DiMaggio" embroidered swatch. The jersey's
dimensions have been considerably abridged by a tailor, likely for
wear by a child, but only the scale is affected, not the wonderful
period aesthetics. Scattered stains and moth holes should be
apparent in our catalog imagery. Not a perfect specimen, but
condition issues must be forgiven in light of the tremendous
rarity. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
