Description

Baseball’s balance of power endured a not-so-subtle shift in 1966 as the Baltimore Orioles reigned supreme en route to the decade’s best record, supplanting the Yankees, who had claimed that distinction for each of the previous four decades. Coinciding with the Birds’ achievement was the Bronx Bombers’ first-ever cellar finish. The offered ensemble was worn that season by Orioles batboy Bob Scherr at Memorial Stadium for both the regular season and Fall Classic conquest of the Dodgers. Impeccable provenance accompanies in the form of a detailed LOA from area expert Phil Wood. The cream-colored flannel items include: Jersey a button-down garment with “Orioles” angled across the chest in orange twill-on-black felt and “BAT MAN” arched atop the back in black felt. Black-on-orange piping lines the collar and sleeve endings, and there are six holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “38” label and a felt strip tag with an embroidered notation of “Bat Boy set 1”; Pants leg wear with six belt loops, two cotton-lined back pockets and black-on-orange piping lining the sides. Within the cotton-lined waistband, a “Wilson” size “36” label is accompanied by a felt tag with embroidered identifiers of “39-36-35 – 66-3.” Additionally, a vintage black marker notation reads “Batman.” The items show solid season-long wear.
