1968 Lee Stange Game-Worn Red Sox Home Flannel Jersey
Out of stock
Lee Stange pitched for ten major league seasons with four clubs, and was a highly regarded pitching coach for eleven seasons after retirement. The diminutive righthander pitched four seasons for the Bosox, arriving on June 2, 1964 in a controversial trade that sent famed reliever, Dick “the Monster” Radatz, to the Indians. This home cream flannel dates to 1968, Stange’s third with the club and the year after the famous Impossible Dream season. 1968 also marked the first time in over three decades that the Red Sox home jerseys were devoid of sleeve, collar, and button path red piping – a tradition that wasn’t renewed until 1979. The jersey is in immaculate condition. Six of the original seven buttons are intact, the lowermost having been replaced. The two-color felt “RED SOX” in front and Stange’s #20 on the verso remain in wonderful condition; and although only visible from the interior, miniscule portions of the backing midnight navy felt has been team reinforced with like-color thread. The lower left front tail bears the McAuliffe troika of labeling – the principle manufacturer’s label sewn in tandem with year (68) and size (42) designators. Both simplicity and condition reign here in this quality representation of one of the Bosox Impossible Dream heroes …and later on, a valued pitching coach.
