1952 Ed Lopat New York Yankees Game-Used Home Flannel Jersey
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $6,380.00
New York Yankees home jersey worn by pitcher Ed Lopat in 1952. The white pinstripe flannel jersey features the club's "NY" logo on the left breast and the number "30" on the reverse. All letters and numbers are appliquéd in navy blue felt. A New York Yankees "50th Anniversary" patch appears on the left sleeve. (One small note for extreme accuracy: this is an original 1952 Yankees "50th Anniversary patch," but we believe that the actual patch that was on this jersey during the 1952 season was removed due to League rules for use in the World Series, and this patch was later reapplied.) The name "Lopat" is chain-stitched in black upon a white felt strip tag in the collar. Located on the left front tail are a "Wilson" label, a "44" size tag and a laundry tag. Directly below the tagging is the year "1952," chain-stitched in black. The jersey is all original, with no alterations, and displays moderate wear. Ed Lopat was one of the Yankees most reliable starters during their 1949-53 baseball dynasty, winning 80 games over that five-year span. The 1952 season once again proved to be a successful one for the crafty lefty, who posted a 10-5 record and 2.53 ERA in helping to lead the Yankees to their fourth consecutive World Championship. 1950s Yankees home flannel jerseys are among the most desirable of all postwar jerseys, especially those worn by key members of the club such as Lopat. This is an exceptional piece of Yankee history dating to their record streak of five consecutive World Championships. Graded A10 by Mears. LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $6,380.00
