    1966 Roger Maris Game Worn New York Yankees Pants.
    Perhaps the most collectible of all post-war ballplayers failing to be inducted into Baseball's Hall of Fame is this hero of the 1961 home run chase, who suited up in this pair of home pinstriped Yankee pants during his final season in the Bronx. While a jersey is undeniably more appealing to the collector than is a pair of pants, the price tag for the few known Maris jerseys will be quite daunting, leaving the smart collector to consider other options to get his Maris game used Yankee uniform fix. For those smart shoppers we present the historic flannel pants, bearing the signs of strong use by the former single season home run king.

    These "Spalding" pants were donated by the Yankees to a winter ball league team in Miramar, Florida. The original owner's story describes his stroke of luck when he grabbed Maris' pants among three boxes of jerseys and pants gifted by the organization. "Maris" is applied to a swatch inside but the other notations are gone from launderings and extensive use. The full outline of the swatch is still visible. A "Set 1 1966" flag tag is still in-place. Washing instructions and Spalding labels are also in the waistline. "28" and "66-9-36" are written in black marker inside. The writing style matches known exemplars of other Yankees jerseys and pants which have previously sold. Letter of provenance from consignor. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
