    1946 John "Red" Corriden Game Worn Brooklyn Dodgers Jersey with Ralph Branca Pants - Letter of Provenance from Preacher Roe's Daughter.

    UPDATE: This lot comes with a letter of provenance from Wanda Roe (Preacher Roe's daughter).

    The season before Jackie Robinson shook up the sporting world at Ebbets Field, this jersey was issued to and worn by coach Red Corriden while traveling with the last edition of the pre-integration Bums. Classic style features blue felt scripted "Dodgers" across chest, but number on verso has been switched at the minor league level from "30" (stitching pattern still visible) to its current "57." Interior collar holds proper "Spalding [size] 42 Regular" label and washing instructions tag above embroidered "J. Corriden" swatch. The "46" vintage is sewn into lower left front tail.

    Matching pants were originally worn by Ralph Branca, best remembered today as the victim of Bobby Thomson's pennant-winning "Shot" of 1951. Branca's embroidered swatch is sewn beside "Spalding [size] 36 Regular" label and washing instructions tag at interior waistband. Both garments exhibit strong wear from lengthy tours of duty in the minors. Letter of provenance from Wanda Roe (Preacher Roe's daughter). LOA from Heritage Auctions.
