    1946 & 1948 Boston Red Sox Game Worn Jerseys Lot of 2.

    UPDATE: The Vern Stephens jersey is a 1951 model--the "46" in the tail relates to size, not year.

    Eight-time All-Star shortstop Vern Stephens' home flannel has "Red Sox" arched across the front with his number "5" on the back, all in double-sewn on red and blue felt. The lettering, numbering, piping (some fraying) and buttons are all original. While the tail and sleeve edges have been cut and hemmed, the "Tim McAuliffe" manufacturing tag, "46-2"" size/set tag, and 1951 A.L. Golden Jubilee patch remnants still remain.

    Catcher Birdie Tebbetts' home flannel has "Red Sox" (professionally restored) arched across the front and "8" (original) on the back, all in double-sewn on red and blue felt. The buttons and piping (some fraying) are all original. "Wilson" manufacturing and "44" size tags reside in the collar, with "48" year tag inside tail in red thread. On the left sleeve there are remnants of where a National Association of 1952 "Professional Baseball Leagues, Golden Anniversary" minor league patch once displayed when the jersey was used in the minors. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
