    Description

    1942 Dom DiMaggio Game Worn Boston Red Sox Jersey. Though he lived in the shadow of his iconic brother, Dominic is still remembered as one of the best outfielders of his age. Injured in the fateful Game Seven of the 1946 World Series, DiMaggio was on the bench as Enos Slaughter made his Championship-winning Mad Dash. "If they hadn't taken DiMaggio out of the game, Slaughter later admitted, "I wouldn't have tried it." Presented is one of the last jerseys worn by the Boston fan favorite just before he undertook three years of World War II service, exhibiting solid wear likely attributable in some degree to secondary wear as well. Classic "Boston" stands in navy blue felt across chest, with the beloved 1942 style "Health" patch on left sleeve. Numeral on reverse is absent, but the outline of a number "7" in proper font is apparent on a light table. "Spalding" and "Tim McAuliffe" labeling is heavily worn but present in collar above a well-preserved "D. DiMaggio" embroidered swatch. The jersey's dimensions have been considerably abridged by a tailor, likely for wear by a child, but only the scale is affected, not the wonderful period aesthetics. Scattered stains and moth holes should be apparent in our catalog imagery. Not a perfect specimen, but condition issues must be forgiven in light of the tremendous rarity. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
