Description1957 Baltimore Orioles Game Worn Flannel Uniform. One of the most attractive flannel baseball uniforms designs ever conceived is also one of the most pristine exemplars we have ever handled.
Zipper-front, road gray, heavy flannel jersey has "Baltimore" scripted across the front and "10" on the verso, all sewn on in large, thick orange on black felt. Black piping surrounds the collar and runs down the center of the garment, parallel to both sides of the zipper. The best part of this jersey is without doubt the spectacular, large 'screaming Oriole' patch which adorns the left sleeve. The jersey is tagged with "Spalding" and "44" in the outer tail, with "Set 1 1957" and the washing label in the inner tail. Matching pants display the same tagging with the exception of the size tag which is "36."
The records show that this number was worn by two different players that season - Tom Patton (one game) and Billy Goodman (seventy-three games, lifetime .300 hitter over sixteen MLB seasons). The condition of the flannel, felt identifiers and patch are impeccable. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
