See a Picture of this Item 148a Important 1966 Sandy Koufax Los Angeles Dodgers professional model home jersey (World Series Season) (Cy Young) (Final Season) (MEARS A9). The Los Angeles Dodgers entered the 1966 season as the favorite in the National League following their 1965 World Championship. The golden arm of Sandy Koufax had led the way to the Dodgers' success in the 1960s but was suffering greatly from an arthritic condition. Doctors has advised Koufax to retire to which he responded with a 1966 campaign that saw him pitch 323 innings with a record of 27-9 and ERA of 1.73. Pitching on two days rest, Koufax hurled the second game of a double header on the final day of the season in a must win situation clinching the NL pennant for the Dodgers. Although the 1966 NL season was a gleaming success for Sandy Koufax winning his third Cy Young Award the Dodgers fell to the Baltimore Orioles in the World Series. The most accomplished pitcher in the prestigious history of the Dodgers franchise left the game befitting of his mythical skill retiring after the 1966 season. Offered is a stunning Sandy Koufax Los Angeles Dodgers professional model home jersey dating to that very season of 1966. Classic cream color flannel jersey retains its original "Dodgers" royal blue team name across the front with red "32" beneath. Back of the jersey retains its original blue "32" numerals. Proper "Tim McAuliffe Inc." tagging is found affixed to the tail front with appropriate "66" and "44" year/set tagging. In the case of many McAuliffe jerseys of the period, most notably Dodgers and Giants, player names are typically seen chain stitched onto the fabric on the tail area near the manufacturer's tagging. This lack of name tagging is seen occasionally on Dodgers jerseys and is normally the case for Red Sox jerseys. This manufacturing anomaly is mentioned for accuracy only and is addressed in detail within the MEARS authentication report which has assessed an overall grade of A9 to the shirt. Overall condition presents in outstanding original state with appropriate indications of moderate wear consistent with use by a pitcher. The wear includes light "thinning" to the surface of the fabrics and minor soiling to a few areas of the jersey. Small portion of the stitching has slightly separated at the base of the "3" on the back of the jersey further corroborating its age and use. The jersey was acquired by a former MLB executive in 1973 (who lived in the Los Angeles area at the time) and has remained within his collection until the current offering. Additionally, the executive was a good acquaintance with long time Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager Buzzie Bavasi. In 1975, Bavasi became aware of the offered Koufax jersey within the collection of the consignor and in jest sent the executive a charming and satirical official MLB typed communiquÄ. The note was hand signed by Buzzie and dated July 31, 1975 teasing him that he "owed" Buzzie a check for $56.00 payable to him for the "stolen" uniform. The significance and desirability of the offered Koufax game jersey cannot be overstated. With regard to condition, dating period to Koufax's final season, primary source provenance, and scant surviving supply of authentic Koufax game jerseys place this particular specimen among the very finest having been previously offered. Magnificent rarity of the highest desirability. Includes LOA from MEARS Authentication (Grade A9), LOA from Hunt Auctions, Letter of Provenance from the former MLB Executive, and copy of the 1975 note from Bavasi to the MLB Executive: EX-MT ($150,000-$300,000) $160,000.00

See a Picture of this Item 187 Highly important 1984 Tony Gwynn San Diego Padres National League Championship ring. At the young age of 24 Tony Gwynn led the upstart San Diego Padres to the National League pennant in 1984. His statistics for the storied 1984 season were quite literally difficult to believe for such a young player compiling a .351 batting average with 213 hits and a .410 on base percentage. Gwynn finished third in the Most Valuable Player voting, was a first time NL All-Star, and batted .368 in the NLCS. His status as an elite player within the game had been established in addition to becoming one of the new stars of Major League Baseball from the mid 1980s era along with others including Sandberg, Gooden, Boggs, and Mattingly. For the San Diego Padres the 1984 season was a breakthrough campaign capturing their first National League title behind a group of young players with a few notable veterans. Their unexpected success during the 1984 season led to record attendance for the franchise and renewed interest in the club as a whole. The Padres were defeated by the formidable Detroit Tigers in the 1984 World Series but there was no question that the season marked as a turning point for the organization. Offered is Tony Gwynn's original 1984 San Diego Padres National League Championship ring. Handsome ring with "Padres National League Champions" titling encircling the top with "SD" design having (23) diamonds inset onto a 'Padres' light brown color stone. One side panel features "Gwynn" name above NL insignia with "19" indicating uniform number. Other side panel displays "1984" dating above Padres logo, stadium, "Dreams Can Come True" slogan, and "RAK" initials in memoriam of team owner Ray Kroc. Interior ring band displays proper Balfour 14K hallmarks. Overall condition is outstanding with very minimal surface wear. The importance and rarity of this particular championship cannot be overstated. Tony Gwynn's position as the greatest player in San Diego Padres' franchise history is beyond reproach. Coupled with his ranking among the finest batsman in the history of Major League Baseball, it can be stated that the offered ring is among the most substantive of its type to have entered the public marketplace. Additionally, it must also be recognized as likely the most significant San Diego Padres related item to have been offered at public auction: NM ($50,000-$100,000) $50,000.00
