Propelled by future Hall of Famers Lou Brock, Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton and Orlando Cepeda, the 1967 Cardinals edged the Boston Red Sox in a seven-game World Series. The team's manager - Red Schoendienst - wore this all-original home white jersey that championship season, including that memorable Fall Classic. Red brought home this jersey after the Series and it was in his possession with the exception of a period in which he loaned it to the Cardinals Museum (the museum ID number is inside). The famous Cardinals logo adorns the front with the number "2" below. "SHOENDIENST" is sewn directly on the back with "2" below. There is a Rawlings 44 tag and Set 1 1967 on the front tail along with "Schoendienst 67" sewn in red. The uniform comes with a hat that was worn by Red while managing but it can't necessarily be pinpointed to 1967. The cap features a leather band by New Era and shows nice use with a faded and bled "2" under the brim. In all, this is nothing short of a gem! The '67 Redbirds won 101 games in capturing the National League pennant by 10.5 games over the San Francisco Giants. They then outlasted Boston in seven games, ending the Red Sox's "Impossible Dream" season. Cepeda was named the National League's first-ever unanimous Most Valuable Player that year, while Gibson and Brock earned God Gloves.
