    Description

    1965 Joe Amalfitano Game Worn Chicago Cubs Jersey. Road grey Sunday cotton flannel, with flakes of light blue yielding bluish/gray hue, was worn by utility infielder Amalfitano, who would briefly serve as the team's manager a decade and a half later. Simple format features "Chicago" in block lettering across chest in royal blue on red felt, with number "17" similarly applied to verso in blue on red tackle twill. Left sleeve bears original Cubie patch. Both the Cubs and Mets were known to use different material for the front and back identifiers during this period.

    Interior collar holds embroidered swatch reading, "2-1965-4-42" for extra length, year, set number, and size. Lower left front tail reveals "Wilson [size] 42" label. Solid game wear but no distractions of staining or tearing. Button number two is no longer present. A fine specimen. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
