    Description

    1964 Mike Shannon Game Worn St. Louis Cardinals Jersey. After five and a half decades serving the franchise from his earliest minor league days through his Major League playing service and four decades at the broadcast mike, Shannon was properly inducted into the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame in August of this year. Though his long tenure as the voice of the Cardinals has become his strongest association, Shannon assured himself a bit of playing immortality during his illness-shortened career, hitting the last home run in the old Busch Stadium and the first one in the new edition.

    Another historic homer off Shannon's bat came during the World Series of the 1964 season, the year the star right fielder sported this road grey flannel. Shannon's two-run blast off Whitey Ford tied the score in Game One, a contest the Cards eventually claimed by a nine to five tally. It's likely that Shannon wore this jersey in at least one of the three Yankee Stadium games, and solid wear suggests a full season of use. Classic birds and bat logo adorns the chest, while number "18" is applied to front and back in red and navy felt. Lower left front tail is tagged "Rawlings [size] 44" and embroidered "Shannon 64." A 9+/10 black sharpie signature appears at lower left tail as well, the autograph acquired at a public signing where the owner snapped a photo of Shannon holding this shirt. Jersey is 100% original and unaltered with no condition issues of note. Also included is a stub for the 1964 World Series Game Seven clincher, EX. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
