These (3) jackets were worn during the 1980s or 1990s by National League stalwarts. Includes:
Atlanta Braves a blue knit button-down jacket likely worn between 1980 and 1985 by either Claudell Washington or Paul Zuvella. “Braves” is angled across the chest in white-on-red double twill, and “18” is sewn to the lower left front in like fashion. Red-white-and-blue striped stretch ribbed cotton lines the collar, waistline and sleeve endings, while the collar is home to a “Wilson” size “44” label. Moderate wear.
Los Angeles Dodgers a blue nylon zippered garment worn by utility man Derrell Thomas between 1980 and 1983. The script-style “Dodgers” name and lengthy paraph are sewn across the chest in white tackle twill; “30” is sewn to the left front in red block-style numerals, and “THOMAS” is arched across the upper back in white tackle twill. Blue-and-white striped stretch ribbed cotton lines the 3-5/8”-wide collar, waistline and button path. Within the collar, a cloth hanger is situated just above a “W.A. Goodman & Sons” size “40” local manufacturer’s label. Just below, Thomas’ black marker autograph shows (“9”) strength and clarity. Worn by one of the few players to perform at eight different positions (everywhere except pitcher), the jacket shows moderate wear with minimal fraying about the twill components.
New York Mets a blue nylon pullover garment worn by slugger Carl Everett between 1995 and 1997. On the left breast, the club’s “NY” logo is sewn in orange pile to a blue felt plate. A skyline-themed team logo patch adorns the left sleeve and “EVERETT” is embroidered atop the back in orange-on-white block-style characters. Blue-orange-and-white striped stretch knit lines the collar, waistline and sleeve endings. Within the zippered collar, a “Starter” label is accompanied by a size “L” flap tag. Light wear.
