1949 Philadelphia A’s Flannel
Out of stock
Handsome, medium weight road flannel from Connie Macks As. 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 As 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.
