1958 Norm Zauchin Game-Worn Washington Senators Flannel Jersey
Out of stock
Norm Zauchin was a prototypical 1950s/60s slugging first baseman who played six years in the bigs – four with the Red Sox and his final two with the Senators (1958 and ’59). Ironically, his greatest day in the majors came on May 27, 1955 when he slugged three home runs and registered ten RBI’s in a 16-0 win over the Senators. Dealt with Albie Pearson to Washington for Pete Runnels, he closed his career in a back-up role, hitting .228 with 15 HR’s in 1958 and playing in only 19 games in 1959.
This road gray gem is from the 1958 season and remains in absolutely perfect condition. The gray flannel jersey body is blemish free and sports a fully functioning zipper. “Senators” graces the front in two-color navy-on-red tackle twill and is stylishly underscored. The verso conveys Zauchin’s #5 in a similar color scheme with the rounded block font used by the club in the late ‘50s.
Made by Spalding, the manufacturer’s colorful blue and red label appears on the lower left front tail stitched in tandem with a size "46" label. Beneath it sits a red chain link identifier, “Zauchin 5 58,” which matches exemplars. On the upper tail is a washing instructions label with a “SET 1 1958” flag tag. Rounding out the decoratives are a “Pitching Senator” disc patch zigzag affixed to the left sleeve, and a gray felt collar swatch reading “Zauchin” in red chain link (in unheard-of perfect condition).
It’s all present, NIC, NIT, great condition, sleeve patch…and all in an extremely rare, late ‘50s style of those beloved American League doormats, the Washington Senators.
