Stationed in the bullpen on those chilly nights in April or September, big leaguers endured the elements in these (4) game-worn jackets. The nylon garments feature proper tagging, team logos and exhibit evidence of light to moderate wear. Includes:
1976-1981 Chicago White Sox Game-Worn Bullpen Jacket: a blue nylon full-length zippered garment with a team logo sewn to the left breast in white-on-blue twill (with a red twill accent) and “CHICAGO” arched atop the back in white twill “dirty sox” font characters. There are two front pockets and a quilted lining. Like the club’s unusual un-tucked pullover jerseys, this jacket has a 4-1/2”-wide knit collar. Within the right-side button path, a “Rawlings” size “44” label has a handwritten notation of “25,” suggesting wear by Jesse Jefferson (1976), Jerry Hairston (1977), Tommy Cruz (1977), Tom Spencer (1978), Bobby Bonds (1978) or Mike Squires (1979-1981).
1990s Florida Marlins Game-Worn Bullpen Jacket: a black nylon full-length zippered garment with a button path, two front pockets and a team logo embroidered to the left breast. The left sleeve is home to a National League logo patch, while the upper back features an MLB silhouette logo in Marlins team colors. Within the collar, a “Majestic” label is accompanied by a cloth hanger, a size “XL” flap tag and a fabric content tag. The left-side interior is home to a blank “Majestic” name tag.
