Description

Given its design and long-time wearer, the offered game-worn jacket is “Dodger Blue” through and through. Specifically, this blue satin-like zippered garment was worn by Hall of Fame skipper Walt Alston during the middle portion of his lengthy tenure. Angled across the chest in white tackle twill, the script-style “Dodgers” name is accented by a lengthy paraph. Blue-and-white striped stretch knit lines the 4-1/4”-wide collar, sleeve endings and waistline. The jacket also features a wool lining and two front pockets. Within the collar, a vintage “W.A. Goodman & Sons” local manufacturer’s label is accompanied by a cloth hanger and a canvas strip tag with inscriptions of “55” and “Alston.” All original and unaltered, the item shows moderate to heavy wear.
