    Nelson Mathews 1963 Chicago Cubs Game-Worn Road Uniform Highly desirable style of road grey flannel was worn by Nelson Matthews during the 1963 season, who shared the dugout with such superstars to have worn similar jerseys as Ernie Banks, Lou Brock and Billy Williams. The jersey once belonged to Nelson Mathews, whose number "23," still quite visible in a ghostly form, was later replaced with the current "30" digits. Red and blue is the theme throughout, with block lettered "Chicago" sewn across chest, charming bear head patch on left sleeve, number "30" on verso, and sleeve and collar piping. Swatch sewn inside collar is embroidered in black thread, "23-4-44," while the tail features a similar "1963" below the Spalding and "44" tagging. Light wear has left this jersey in beautiful, pristine condition. We'll even throw in two pairs of pants from 1961 and 1962, also from unidentified players, but matching the jersey and perfect for display purposes. LOA from Dan Knoll & Dave Bushing/SCD Authentic.
