    1956 Randy Jackson Game Worn Uniform. The glorious Brooklyn Dodgers home flannel, coveted by thousands, owned by few. Here we present a gorgeous representation from this teammate of Jackie, Campy, Pee Wee and the Duke, a full uniform worn at Ebbets Field's hot corner by "Handsome Ransom" Jackson. Crafted from pillow-soft white flannel, the jersey body is affixed with the classic blue felt "Dodgers" script on the chest with a red number "2" below, a digit that is repeated on verso in blue. Below the "Spalding [size] 42" tagging in the left front tail appears a blue chain stitched "Jackson" identifier, followed by a strong black ink signature from the jersey's former owner. Interior tail has a straight-stitched washing instructions tag with an affixed flap tag reading "Set 1 1956." The matching pants have the "Set 1 1956" flap tag dangling from below the "Spalding" label, which rests above an embroidered swatch reading "Jackson 56." At left and right of the manufacturer's tag are washing instructions and a size "34" tag respectively. The uniform is in spectacular condition despite its fifty years of existence, with only a small scattering of barely visible light stains and tiny moth holes, nothing that is instantly noticeable upon display. It was worn in the 1956 World Series, best remembered for Don Larsen's perfect game, and was also used in a Tour of Japan after the Series. After the return to his native Georgia from Japan, Jackson kept the uniform, which is the principle reason for its fantastic condition and the fact that it was retained at all. A letter of provenance from Jackson himself attests to this special history. An incredible offering from this honored member of the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Fame. LOA from MEARS. LOA from Lou Lampson.
