Description

In 1967, Sandy Koufax signed a 10-year contract with NBC for US$1 million (equivalent to $7.8 million in 2020) to be a broadcaster on the Saturday Game of the Week. He quit after six years, just prior to the start of the 1973 season.

The Dodgers hired Koufax to be a minor league pitching coach in 1979. He resigned in 1990, saying he was not earning his keep, but most observers blamed it on his uneasy relationship with manager Tommy Lasorda. Koufax returned to the Dodger organization in 2004 when the Dodgers were sold to Frank McCourt. The Dodgers again hired Koufax in 2013 as a special advisor.

Presented is a Los Angeles Dodgers – Sandy Koufax jersey issue to him by the Dodgers team. It features a rare and desirable manufacturer’s label “W.A. Goodman & Sons [size] 42″ on the front tail. This tagging would NOT be a retail jersey and was issued to him by the team.   It measures 22” across the chest of the jersey which would equate to his normal size of “44”.

The tagging correlates to the 1980s time period when Koufax was a minor league pitching coach with the team. The classic design features “DODGERS” in blue tackle twill script across the chest with “32” on the front in red, and on the verso in blue/white “KOUFAX” and “32”.

Koufax would have worn this on the field when he was coaching.  Obtaining anything by the GREAT Dodger Koufax, is spectacular and a very difficult feat to find in the hobby.  So although, not from Koufax’s playing days, it is still worn by Koufax during his time working with baseball.

The highlight was that it was autographed on the front by Koufax in black felt tip (“8”) on the bottom of the button path. The jersey shows minor signs of wear with wrinkled tagging and mild thread fraying.
