The jersey, pants, belt and stirrups are all original, unrestored and show nice use. The familiar Braves tomahawk logo adorns the front of the jersey, while Red's #4 appears on both the front and back. There's Wilson 44 and "1957" tagging on the front tail. The name "O'Connel" is stitched in the collar, referring to Danny O'Connel, a journeyman infielder who was traded to the Giants on June 15.
