1967 Eddie Stanky Signed Chicago White Sox Game-Used Home Flannel Jersey
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $587.50
Chicago White Sox home flannel jersey worn by manager Eddie Stanky in 1967. The white pinstriped jersey is lettered “Sox” on the left breast and features the number “2” on the right breast and reverse. “Stanky” is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in blue on white tackle twill, with the exception of the name, which is done entirely in blue tackle twill. The name “Stanky” is chain-stitched in navy upon a white strip tag in the collar. A “Wilson 38” label is located on the left front tail. Situated directly below the manufacturer’s tag is a white strip tag bearing the year and set number (“67 Set 1”) chain-stitched in navy. Stanky has signed the jersey in blue Sharpie (“9”) in the collar. Stanky wore number “12” with the White Sox in 1967, thus the number “2” on this jersey represents a number change. Also, Stanky’s name on the reverse has been restored. Those two modifications probably indicate that this jersey was later used in the minor leagues (a common practice at that time). Aside from the two aforementioned alterations, the jersey is completely original and displays heavy wear throughout, including a few small tears on the front and reverse. Stanky, known during his playing days as “The Brat,” took over the managerial reigns of the White Sox in 1966. In 1967 his team won eighty-nine games; however, the following year the team got off to a slow start and he was fired in midseason. Stanky was a scrappy infielder during his day, and though his lifetime average was only .268 he had a penchant for getting on base. Today, he holds the distinction of recording more walks than hits in two separate seasons. Graded A6.5 by MEARS (base grade of 10, minus 1 point for the restored name on back, minus 2 points for the number change and minus an additional half point for condition). From the Barry Halper Collection. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $587.50
