A significant game-worn jersey of such prominence is a marvelous thing! Worn by HOFer, Don Drysdale in 1965, en route to the World Series. It would be the 2nd World Championship for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 3 years. The sidearm hurler with an overwhelming fastball was one of the best hitting pitchers of his day, recording 49 career shutouts over the course of his career (6 consecutive in ’68). His jersey is replete with the furnishings of a game-used uniform. “[blue] Dodgers [red] 53” stitched across the front. Verso is simply yet boldly his #53 in blue. Tagging on front left tail is “Tim McAuliffe inc. QualityAthleticEquipment 24 Lincoln St. Boston, Mass.” with [year] “’65” & [size] 46 flag tags. “Drysdale” stitched onto tag just below. Use is evident on front, verso and under arms. A great jersey from one of the great power pitchers, whose name is synonymous with the Los Angeles Dodgers. All original.
