    Description

    1966 John Stephenson Game Worn New York Mets Jersey. Year five for this slowly-improving new addition to the National League landscape. This is effectively the same style that had been used throughout the Mets' existence since its 1962 inaugural, though the numbers on front were a 1965 advancement. The number "12" we find here, beneath the uniquely fonted blue and orange felt "New York," is that of back-up catcher Stephenson, who came up just short of the Mendoza Line this year but served ably in defense. The digits are repeated on verso. Team logo patch on left sleeve. Interior collar holds "12-40" embroidered swatch. Lower left front tail is tagged "Wilson [size] 40" with "Set 2" and "66" flap tags below. A markered name inside collar likely relates to secondary wear in the minors, and the heavy wear further bolsters that theory. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
