    Description

    1956 Jim Wilson Game Worn Baltimore Orioles Jersey. Road grey flannel exhibits solid wear from a season that saw three birds wear the number "36" on the road with Baltimore. Initially the shirt was issued to starting pitcher Wilson, whose name appears embroidered into the tail with size "44" and "3 in" tailoring notation beneath the "Spalding [size] 44" label. Later, fellow pitcher Mike Fornieles and Connie Johnson would have their turns. "Baltimore" is scripted across the chest in orange and black felt, with number "36" applied in similar format to verso. Zipper front remains functional. Team logo patch on left sleeve is missing, likely removed during secondary use in the minors, but we actually have an example of the missing patch in our Final Session. Otherwise the jersey is solid and complete with functional zipper and no significant distractions. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
