Collection of Three Circa 1966-1968 Boston Red Sox Game-Used Flannel Jerseys

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $1,645.00

Each of these three Boston Red Sox flannel jerseys dates to the late 1960s, and while only one can be attributed to a specific player, all are fine representative "style" jerseys from the period. 1) Circa 1966-1968 Dalton Jones Boston Red Sox game-used home jersey. The white flannel jersey is lettered "Boston" across the front and features the number "3" on the reverse. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in red on navy felt. A "McAuliffe" label appears on the left front tail. Both the size tag and year tag have been removed from the jersey (left front tail), otherwise it remains complete as issued. Light wear is displayed throughout. Only infielder Dalton Jones wore number "3" with the Red Sox between the years 1966 and 1968. Graded A8 by MEARS (base grade of 10, with 1 point deducted, respectively, for the removal of both the year and size tags). 2) Circa 1966-1968 Boston Red Sox game-used home jersey. The white flannel jersey is lettered "Boston" across the front and features the number "4" on the reverse. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in red on navy felt. Both a "McAuliffe" label and “46” size tag appear on the left front tail. Aside from the removal of the year tag the jersey remains complete as issued and displays light wear. Three different players (Don Demeter, Jim Gosger and Norm Seibern) wore number “4” between the years 1966 and 1968. Graded A7 by MEARS (base grade of 10, with 3 points deducted, combined, for the removal of the year tag and lack of positive player identification). 3) 1966-1968 Boston Red Sox game-used road jersey. The gray flannel jersey is lettered “Boston” across the front and features the number “4” on the reverse. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in navy felt. Both a "McAuliffe" label and “46” size tag appear on the left front tail. Aside from the removal of the year tag the jersey remains complete as issued and displays light wear. This garment, as do the other two offered here, originates from the famed Barry Halper Collection. One of Barry’s goals was, whenever possible, to have every jersey in his collection signed by the respective player. With that in mind, he had Hall of Fame infielder Lou Boudreau sign this jersey in blue Sharpie (“9/10”) in the collar. He did so because Boudreau wore number “4” with the Red Sox years earlier. It should be noted that Barry obtained this uniform long before collectors and historians began a systematic and comprehensive study of Major League uniform styles. Thus, without the aid of any reliable reference works, he inaccurately dated the jersey to a slightly earlier period. As noted earlier, three different players wore number “4” between the years 1966 and 1968. Graded A7 by MEARS (base grade of 10, with 3 points deducted, combined, for the removal of the year tag and lack of positive player identification). From the Barry Halper Collection. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and James Spence/JSA. Total: 3 jerseys. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,645.00
