Description: 1937 Leo Durocher St. Louis Cardinals professional model road jersey (SGC/Grob: "Good"). Gray flannel jersey has the "Cardinals" team name embroidered on front. In the collar is a "Rawlings" tag with size (40) tag below. "Leo Durocher" is embroidered on the front tail and the number "2" which he would have worn has been removed from the back. Use and wash wear are evident throughout along with general age and storage/handling wear including fraying/loss to portions of the trim and a series of holes in the front and back tails. In addition, there is a small hole under the left arm. The buttons have been reenforced. Durocher spent a lifetime in baseball breaking into the Major Leagues as a player in 1925 and retiring as a Manager in the early 1970s. Along the way he was a member of some of the games' most noted teams and played alongside or Managed some of it's greatest stars. A controversial and outspoken figure he found a great fit in St. Louis and was embraced by the "Gashouse Gang" whom he helped to capture the 1934 World Series title. While a number of jerseys dating his time as a Manager have surface those which were issued during his playing days are notably scarce with this being the only Cardinals example we can cite having come to market in many years. A packet of information is included (copies of original documents/etc) which relate to a Minor League player whom was issued the jersey after it's use in the Major Leagues. Includes LOAs from Hunt Auctions and SGC/Grob (graded "Good"): VG
