    1952 Early Wynn Game Worn Cleveland Indians Jersey.

    UPDATE: Please note that there is a small tear at left side, seen in the images. There is also a tear along the back seam of the left sleeve, not visible in the images and easily hidden on display.

    In one of the greatest pitching rotations ever assembled, including fellow Hall of Famers Bob Feller and Bob Lemon, it was Wynn who recorded the most victories in 1952, topping by one the tally of twenty-two shared by his fellow legends. Though it would be two more years before the Tribe would supplant the Yankees as the kings of the American League, Wynn's masterful 1952 campaign would earn him his first top-five finish in Most Valuable Player voting. He would claim the Cy Young Award in 1959 and enter the 300 Win Club with his final Major League victory in the second to last start of his career in 1963. The Hall of Fame would welcome him to the fold nine years later.

    Presented is just the second Wynn jersey Heritage has had the privilege of offering, and the first deriving from the team that remains Wynn's primary association. Scripted "Indians" adorns chest in red and black felt, with Wynn's number "24" similarly applied to reverse. Left sleeve retains the classic Chief Wahoo patch. Lower left front tail reveals "Wilson [size] 46" labeling with washing instructions tag above and an embroidered black thread "1952" below, sewn directly into the jersey body. Fine game wear evident.

    Included is a matching pair of Indians uniform pants, properly tagged and likewise dated to 1952 with black embroidery at interior waistband, though lacking any direct attribution to Wynn. We offer them only for display purposes. Both jersey and pants lack the staining and moth holes typical of vintage flannel, retaining world class aesthetics as a result. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
