Description

As American League combatants were to learn in 1966, there was no home field advantage when the Baltimore Orioles came calling. This O’s road ensemble was worn by batboy Bob Scherr as the Birds posted a (then) franchise best 49-32 record away from Memorial Stadium and proceeded to win the first two Fall Classic contests in Los Angeles. Accompanying is rock-solid provenance in the form of an LOA from Baltimore/Washington area expert Phil Wood. The gray flannel uniform includes: Jersey a button-down garment with “Baltimore” angled across the chest in orange-on-black felt and “BAT MAN” arched atop the back in like fashion. Black piping lines the collar and button path, and there are four holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation. Within the collar, a strip tag has chain stitched notations of “66 BB 38,” and the vented left front tail is home to a “Spalding” label, a laundering instructions tag and a “SET 1 1966” flap tag; Pants leg wear with six belt loops, a four-button fly and two cotton-lined back pockets. Black piping lines the outer legs, and the waistline’s interior is home to a felt strip tag with stitched notations of “62 34 34 23-1/2.” Near the fly, a “Spalding” label is sewn alongside a laundering instructions tag and a “SET 1 1962” tag (suggesting that the bat boy simply outgrew the pants that were issued with the jersey, as the ’62 style was the same as the ’66 style). All original and unaltered, the items show moderate wear.
