1960s Leo Durocher Signed, Game-Worn Dodgers Jersey
Out of stock
Leo Durocher earned his nickname “The Lip” because of his salty vocabulary and abrasive attitude against umpires. This cream-colored Dodgers home jersey no doubt got the heave-ho at least once in the 1961-64 period, when Durocher was a coach with the club. The trademark Dodgers script on the front and the back numeral are original, while the red “2” on the front appears to have been restored. The original identifiers exhibit slight fabric loss. Tail tags include a chain-stitched “Durocher” swatch that has taken on a pinkish hue from a number of washes, and a Tim McAuliffe manufacturer identifier. Remnants of a third tag are evident. According to jersey authenticator Lou Lampson, there’s some uncertainty as to why the shirt doesn’t have the typical slash-style numeral font similar to the McAuliffe-made A’s, Red Sox and Angels models. On sets that were made in the mid-1960s, the Dodgers numeral font was the prototypical rounded, plain-block variety, an indication that this version dates to the 1964 season. Most likely, the change was made at the club’s request to maintain consistency with the style that dated back to the 1940s. Built-in eyelets appear in the armpits for ventilation. A team-instituted repair (1 1/4″) is found on the lower left sleeve. Durocher signed the front in blue felt tip (“9”) to add a luster to this already distinctive shirt.
