    Description

    1982 Luke Appling Cracker Jack Old-Timers' Classic Game Worn Uniform with Signed Cap - from Home Run against Warren Spahn. If the Guinness Book of World Records had a category for oldest person to hit a home run it would have to include a picture of Luke Appling. In the early 1980's, Cracker Jack sponsored Old-Timers' Games across the league. Luke Appling, at the ripe old age of 75, connected on a Warren Spahn offering and deposited the ball into the RFK Stadium seats. At an age when most men could barely pick up a bat, Appling was rounding the bases in a full home run trot. This is the uniform he wore when history occurred. The "Rawlings size 48" white knit pullover has its identifiers screened on. Staining is visible on front and "Appling" is arched to a nameplate. Also included are: "Rawlings size 40" pants, "Rawlings size L" satin jacket with a Cracker Jack circular patch on the chest, signed "New Era size 7 3/8" cap with "27" markered under the brim and a newspaper clipping recounting the home run, Rawlings undershirt, red stirrups and a ticket stub from the game. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic.
