    Description

    1963 Wally Moon Game Worn Los Angeles Dodgers Jersey. Moon got his start in the Majors after he refused an order to report to a St. Louis Cardinals farm club and headed for Spring Training in Florida instead, insisting he'd make the Big Leagues or quit the sport. That year he would earn the 1954 National League Rookie of the Year Award. Here we present a home white flannel jersey worn in his tenth Major League season, as outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers. "Dodgers 9" is applied in classic blue and red felt to the chest, with the numeral repeated in blue on verso, with some wear to the edges here. Lower left front tail holds proper "Tim McAuliffe" label with "'63" year and "42" size tags beneath. An embroidered "Moon" swatch is below, still solid with some stitching detachment. The jersey was issued as a hand-me-down to our consignor in 1968 at a Dodgers try-out camp in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, and his letter of provenance is included. Jersey exhibits solid use, but it presents very well. This is the first Dodgers jersey from Moon to surface within a major sports auction in the past decade. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Letter of provenance from owner.
