Like so many worthwhile efforts, Sherm Lollar’s successful baseball career was a cyclical adventure in which he debuted at 18 for the International League’s Baltimore Orioles, played 18 seasons for four different big league suitors, then returned to Baltimore in a coaching capacity. This Baltimore Orioles home jersey was worn by the erstwhile backstop during the 1965 season at Memorial Stadium. In the third and final year of the jersey’s style, the cream-colored flannel button-down garment features “ORIOLES” arched across the chest in black-on-orange felt and “41” sewn to the back in like fashion. Orange-and-black piping lines the collar and sleeve endings, while the tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “42” label and a felt strip tag with chain-stitched identifiers reading “41-42-66-1.” More on our website.
There are (6) holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation. The all-original jersey shows solid game wear with minimal fading about the twill components.
The jersey comes with a MEARS Authentication hologram (#305537)
