    Early 1950's Philadelphia Athletics Game Worn Uniform, MEARS A9.5. Note the little tail on the left side of the letter "A" over the heart--this is a three-season format beginning with the first year without Connie Mack at the helm, and ending just a season before the White Elephants pulled up stakes for a new Kansas City home. Several players wore number "15" during this period so definitive attribution is impossible, but Joe Tipton and Frank Fanovich are the most likely suspects. Interior collar of jersey holds local Philly sporting goods manufacturer "Pearson" label, with embroidered swatch in the tail announcing size "42." Matching pants bear no maker's mark but for matching embroidered swatch stating "34-15." Original belt completes the package. Game wear evident, but condition is marvelous with no distracting holes, stains or tears to report. A missing button accounts for the half-point deduction from a perfect rating. LOA from MEARS, A9.5. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
