    Mid-1940's Snuffy Stirnweiss Game Worn Uniform. A wartime acquisition meant to reinforce a line-up suffering from conscription, Stirnweiss' baseball career survived VE and VJ Day and he remained a fixture in the Yankee infield until mid-season of 1950. Here we find one of his earliest uniforms, perhaps his rookie, though the lack of any year tagging makes this impossible to know for certain. Acquired from the same minor league source that brings the Phil Rizzuto jersey and Tommy Henrich pants to this sale, this full pinstriped uniform also shows the strong wear of at least two seasons of duty, one in the Bronx. The jersey's second tour of duty saw the loss of the "NY" logo over the heart, though the number "2" on the verso remains original and unmoved. "Wilson [size] 44" tagging in the collar is likewise original, and proper for Stirnweiss. The matching pants offer the same "Wilson" tag in the waistband, with a size "36" flap tag affixed at right. Like the jersey, minor age spotting is the only condition flaw to mention--there are no tears or other noteworthy issues. LOA from Lou Lampson.
