1966 Hank Aaron Game Worn Atlanta Braves Jacket

1966 Hank Aaron Game Worn Atlanta Braves Jacket

In 1966, Aaron and the Braves moved from Milwaukee to their new home in Atlanta. The change in scenery did nothing to slow down Aaron’s assault on National League pitchers. In his first season in Atlanta, Aaron slammed 44 home runs and drove in 127 runs. It was around this time that baseball fans everywhere were beginning to wonder if Aaron was headed towards the rarefied air occupied by fellows like Ruth. It would take some more years to confirm it but the seeds had been planted by 1966. This Atlanta Braves lined jacket even has the look of being steeped in baseball history. It’s black with red trim and constructed of a worn satin. Collar, waist, and parts of sleeves are knit. Inside collar “Wilson 48” tag below black leather piece for hanging the jacket up. Front has “Braves” across the chest. Two diagonal front pockets with black leather trim. Interior has “44...1966” chain stitched on large felt swatch. There is also a fading “#32” in marker inside, just under the Wilson tag. Jacket shows outstanding overall wear, even sporting one team repair on the left shoulder. This piece has resided in the collection of a longtime equipment dealer’s stash for many, many years.
