    1963 Frank Baumann Game Worn Chicago White Sox Jersey. One of the higher profile "bonus babies" of the 1950's with the highest price ever paid for a free agent at time time, Frank Baumann was signed right out of high school and nicknamed "Beau" by Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey. In 1960, he was the American League ERA leader in 1960 with 2.67 mark. Here we present his Chicago White Sox game jersey.

    Button-down road gray flannel displays "Chicago" arched across the chest, "Bauman 38" on the verso, and "38 on the right sleeve, all sewn-on in navy blue tackle twill. There is a green "MacGregor 44" tag in the collar and a white "MacGregor Set 1 1963" in the tail. It must be noted that the player name and numbers were removed when the jersey was sent down to the minors ("Des" in marker in collar) and then restored at a later date (with the name spelled "Bauman" instead of "Baumann"). Still, the jersey shows fine wear and displays remarkably well. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
