    1957-59 Jack McMahon Game Worn St. Louis Hawks Jersey. It is nearly impossible to pinpoint just one singular selling point on this Jack McMahon game-worn St. Louis Hawks jersey. Constructed out of durene material the fire engine red pullover still has that sparkle to it. Each of the identifiers is crafted in two-tone drop shadow white-on-blue tackle twill and shows wonderful NBA wear. But the red, white and blue trim surrounding the neckline and both shoulder yokes adds a serious dose of aesthetics to this enticing jersey. But not to be outdone is the white/red/blue/red/white side striping. Sourced from McMahon's godson is this very gamer and warmup pants. McMahon gifted this to his godson around 1963. We have determined the jersey to have been worn between 1957 to '60. Excellent wear is shown on the pullover, which had to been worn a year or more. Rear interior tagging includes the following labels: "Rawlings [size] 40" ("Murch" written in black marker, subsequently done), "Sisler Hummel" label and washing instructions. Also included are Hawks warmup pants. The following labels appear in side: washing instructions, "Sisler Hummel," "Rawlings [size] 34" and "#22" (player identification). Because McMahon didn't wear "22" we assume they were donned by a teammate. Slater Martin or Al Ferrari both wore #22. A letter from Tim Murch, McMahon's godson will attend. It is highly likely that McMahon donned this very jersey during the team's only championship season of 1957-58. Style, check. Substance, check. One of the finest St. Louis Hawks jerseys to surface, an emphatic check. Letter of provenance from Tim Murch, Jack McMahon's Godson. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
