Description

Handsome, medium weight road flannel from Connie Mack’s A’s. This jersey is in immaculate condition, missing only two of seven front buttons. The all-felt, two-color identifiers (“A” on front and “14” on back) are original and fully intact, as is the sleeve, neck and button-path piping. The lower right front tail within the button path sports a multiplicity of labeling: MacGregor/Goldsmith [size] “44” black label, the Mitchell & Ness (heard of that one lately?) distributor label, the “Set 1, 1949” flag tag and a felt swatch with #14 in black chain link. These are worth the price of admission alone. No roster player wore #14 in 1949. It was probably made for Herman Franks, who wore #14 for the A’s in 1947 and 1948. Franks moved on to the N.Y. Giants for one game in 1949 and retired. A call-up may have worn it late in ’49 and Gene Markland, who wore #14 for five games in 1950, would have worn it in Spring Training. Though the player is unidentifiable, this is still a great piece of Athletics history – that is, the Philadelphia Athletics.
