    1950'S-60'S Jack Tobin Game Worn St. Louis Browns Old Timers Jersey. True style never goes out of fashion, but it makes it a bit tougher to nail down a date for this extraordinary flannel from star Browns outfielder Jack Tobin, who sported this look during an Old-Timer's game during the 1950's or 1960's. Though Tobin labored in the shadow of the great George Sisler, limiting the attention he garnered, he found himself in the top ten for American League batting average during four of the seasons in which this jersey may have seen action, and retired with a career .309 mark placing him at an impressive 118th position in baseball history.

    Presenting brown piping decorating the button path, the collar and sleeve cuffs show not a hint of fraying, and the logo "St. L" on the left sleeve remaining complete in matching brown felt. Tobin's surname is embroidered directly into the jersey body at lower left exterior tail, just below an early "Rawlings 'Hall of Fame' Flannel" label and size "42" designator. A washing instructions tags is inside, just above the lower hem. A scattered degree of light age-spotting is only apparent upon close inspection and does not distract the eye, nor does some hand trimming of the lowermost part of the button path, which remains hidden when the jersey is displayed. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
