    Description

    1958 Rocky Colavito Game Worn Cleveland Indians Jersey, MEARS A8. The biggest hero for Italian-American baseball fans since Joe DiMaggio, this young right fielder earned the bronze medal in American League MVP voting the season he wore this home pinstriped flannel, topping the Junior Circuit with a thunderous .620 slugging percentage. Mickey Mantle narrowly maintained his dominance of the home run chart with one more than Rocky's tally of forty-one. The garment exhibits marvelous wear from that fruitful campaign but remains in 100% original condition. "Indians" stands in bold red and navy block tackle twill across the chest, with Colavito's celebrated number "6" similarly constructed on verso. A well-worn Chief Wahoo patch grins from the left sleeve. White felt swatch at interior collar announces, "1958," while the tail provides a "Wilson [size] 44" manufacturer's label and smaller washing instructions tag just below. Scattered staining is confined mainly to the reverse, but is still not a major distraction. One missing button. A tough and desirable representation from one of the greatest seasons posted by this cult favorite. LOA from MEARS, A8. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
