1956 Kinder/Konstanty/Wilhelm Game Worn Jersey

1956 Kinder/Konstanty/Wilhelm Game Worn Jersey

The facts will be forever lost to history, but even if you take the worst case scenario, that this jersey was made for pitcher Ellis Kinder, who was dealt to the White Sox and replaced by Yankee Jim Konstanty mid-season, it's still a real winner. The look and feel is splendid. "Cardinals" in duotone script across chest is gorgeous, as is the embroidered logo bird on the left sleeve. But here's where it gets interesting: the team number change on the back is to "25," the very same number worn by Hoyt Wilhelm during his half season with the Cards in the beginning of 1957. Now, given the established practice of wearing the previous season's jerseys during Spring Training, it is certainly conceivable that the Hall of Fame pitcher could have tossed a few around in this very jersey. It is entirely within the realm of possibility. Tail tagging is "Rawlings Hall of Fame Flannel [size] 46," with washing instructions tag and "Set 1 1956" flag tag inside. "Kinder 56" is stitched in red thread.
