    Early 1980's Rickey Henderson Game Worn Oakland Athletics Flip Down Sunglasses. Even with his bronze plaque firmly installed at Cooperstown, Henderson may remain the most underrated player in baseball history. A perpetual top-ten finisher in on-base percentage, Henderson was a master at capitalizing upon opportunity, a tenacious spirit that earned him the career leadership of both stolen bases and runs scored.

    Here we present a unique pair of the speedster's flip down sunglasses that he wore during game play in the early 1980's. Accompanied with a Letter of provenance from former trainer of the Oakland Athletics Barry Weinberg, they exhibit great wear, and have a swatch with Henderson's No. 24 on one side, and a swatch noting his name on the other side. Letter of provenance from Barry Weinberg on St. Louis Cardinals letterhead. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
