    1969 Stan Williams Game Worn Cleveland Indians Jersey. A baseball man for more than fifty years, Stan Williams was a two-time All-Star, two-time World Series champ, and a member of three starting rotations which are considered amongst the greatest ever -- the 1962 Dodgers, 1963 Yankees, and 1968 Indians. Williams was also a teammate of Koufax, Drysdale, Mantle, Ford, Killebrew, Carew, Gibson, and Yaz.

    Presented here is Stan's 1969 gamer -- one of the most stunning jersey styles of the flannel era. The cream-colored home vest delights with a zipper front, die-cut Chief Wahoo patch, 100th Anniversary patch, red tackle twill "35" on the front and back, and red/black braid decorating the collar and arm openings. Tagging in the tail includes a "Wilson 48" label and a white nylon swatch with "1969" in red chainlink.

    The verso originally displayed "Williams" arched over the number (and directly sewn onto the jersey) in red tackle twill. After the season, when the jersey was relegated for use in the minor leagues, the name and the 100th Anniversary patch were removed. Later, the patch was restored to its original home. The same can be done with the name (the outline of which is still visible) if the winning bidder so desires. In any state, this garment remains a fantastic display piece and a worthy reminder of a golden year for uniform design. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
