    1965 Felipe Alou Game Worn Milwaukee Braves Jersey, MEARS GU 8.5. With a heavy heart, the city of Milwaukee said goodbye to the Braves in 1965. A one-year injunction kept the team in Brew City for one more season, but the Braves belonged to Atlanta the following season. Felipe Alou, the first Dominican to play on a consistent basis in the big leagues, wore this very flannel jersey when the Braves finished out their stay in Milwaukee. Graded MEARS 8.5, the flannel shows outstanding use characteristics with heavy puckering on the two-color tackle twill identifiers. "Braves 29" is sewn on front while the reverse features "29". Accentuating the left sleeve is a screaming Brave team patch. Appearing in the collar is "Alou 65 set 3" which is administered to a swatch. Some material degradation is visible on the swatch, especially near the top portion. A period "Wilson [size] 40" label is sewn in the tail. No repairs or restoration present on this historic gamer. LOA from MEARS, A8.5. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
