Mathews' home white flannel survives in 100% original condition, unchanged in appearance from the year the twenty-five year old third baseman posted thirty-two homers and ninety-four runs batted in during the regular season. The gorgeous red and black scripted "Braves" angles across the chest above the classic tomahawk logo, with number "41" just below the heart. Number "41" is repeated on verso. The screaming brave logo patch remains affixed at left sleeve. Interior collar holds embroidered "Mathews" swatch, with 80% of the stitching that affixes the swatch remaining. The "1957" embroidered year swatch in the tail is similarly applied, beneath the proper "Wilson [size] 44" and washing instructions tags. The single flaw is a broken zipper on the front, which could be easily repaired or pinned shut for display.
Could this be the shirt Mathews was wearing when he crushed his Game Four tenth inning walk-off shot to even the Series? Considering the fact that each player was issued two home and two road jerseys during this period, we calculate the odds at an even fifty-fifty. But is it one of the greatest flannel finds of 2010? Our oddsmakers call that a sure thing. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
