    1940's Memphis Red Sox Negro League Jacket. One of the true rarities of the collecting world is that of Negro League wares. Most of it was discarded or worn until it was ready for the incinerator. Even the Negro League Museum has a shortage in Negro League uniforms and game-used mementos. This "Deckers Inc. [size] 40" jacket was worn by one member of the Memphis Red Sox Negro League team in the 1940's. Heavy wear is shown throughout. The black leather sleeves have moderate scuffing and age. "Red Sox" is administered to a felt "M" on front. Red and white are intertwined on the neck, sleeve ends and tail trim. A manufacturer's logo and size indicator appear in the collar. No player attribution is available. The cherry on top of this is an equipment bag used during the same time period. "Property of Memphis Red Sox" is stenciled in black on the fully functional offering. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
