    1938 Woody Jensen Game Worn Pittsburgh Pirates Uniform, MEARS A10. He shared a dugout with Arky Vaughan, the Waner brothers and coach Honus Wagner on a 1938 Pirates team that finished just two games behind the National League Champion Chicago Cubs. Jensen was engaged in the eighth of his nine Major League seasons when he sported this home white ensemble, the former lead-off man now serving primarily in the role of back-up outfielder. The rare two-year style features a scripted "Pirates" across the chest of the jersey, with his number "16" applied in midnight navy felt to verso. Piping remains intact at collar and cuffs. "Jensen" is embroidered directly into the collar above the "Spalding [size] 44" labeling, while "38" is embroidered at interior center rear tail.

    Matching pants have no player attribution present, but the unusual style--navy belt loops and red side piping--is correct for the 1938 Bucs. Here we find some dye bleed from the belt loops, but a full uniform from the pre-war era is so rare that we must forgive this minor fault. Otherwise, a few small, scattered stains to each half of the uniform are noted only in the interest of full disclosure, as the uniform earns every point of its top MEARS rating. LOA from MEARS, A10. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
