Description

Making the transition from Connie Mack Stadium to the “cookie cutter” Veterans Stadium, the Philadelphia Phillies followed suit in team attire, discarding the heavy flannels for tight-fitting knits. These (6) game-worn jerseys hail from both sides of the transition. Includes:

Byron Browne 1971 Philadelphia Phillies Game-Worn Home Jersey: a cream-colored flannel button-down garment with a red pinstripe pattern, the script-style “P” logo embroidered in maroon to a white twill plate on the chest and “24” sewn to the back and right front in like fashion. Maroon trim lines the shoulders and sides, while the collar’s interior is home to a swatch with “Browne” stitched in black cursive. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “42” label and a chain stitched “1970” identifier. There are six holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation. The all-original gamer shows excellent game wear with dirt and perspiration-induced stains throughout. In an ominous debut to his Major League career, Browne was in the Chicago Cubs September 9, 1965 lineup victimized by Sandy Koufax’ perfect game. Other dubious distinctions include being a part of the infamous 1969 Curt Flood trade and striking out a whopping 273 times in 869 career at-bats!

Billy DeMars 1977 Philadelphia Phillies Game-Worn Coach’s Home Jersey: a cream-colored knit zippered garment with the script-style “P” logo sewn to the left breast in maroon twill, “2” sewn to the back and right front and “HARMON” arched on a nameplate atop the back number in like fashion. Maroon trim lines the shoulders and sides, while the cotton-lined collar is home to a swatch with “DeMars” stitched in black cursive. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “44” label and a swatch with chain-stitched identifiers reading: “44 77 1.” Moderate wear is evident with minimal puckering about the twill components and minimal color fading.

Terry Harmon 1974 Philadelphia Phillies Game-Worn Road Jersey: a light-blue knit zippered garment with the script-style “P” logo sewn to the left breast in red-on-white twill, “17” sewn to the back and right front and “HARMON” arched on a nameplate atop the back number in like fashion. Red-on-white trim lines the shoulders and sides, while the satin-lined collar is home to a swatch with “Harmon” stitched in black cursive. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “42” label and a swatch with chain-stitched identifiers reading: “74 Set 2 42.” Moderate wear is evident with minimal puckering about the twill components.

Richie Hebner 1979 Philadelphia Phillies Game-Worn Home Jersey: a cream-colored knit zippered garment with the script-style “P” logo sewn to the left breast in maroon twill, “18” sewn to the back and right front and “HEBNER” arched on a nameplate atop the back number in like fashion. Maroon trim lines the shoulders and sides, while the cotton-lined collar is home to a swatch with “Hebner” stitched in black cursive. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “44” label and a swatch with chain-stitched identifiers reading: “79 2.” Moderate wear is evident. Note: this jersey was issued to Hebner that spring (and likely worn during spring training) before he was traded to the New York Mets on March 27.

Joe Lis 1970 Philadelphia Phillies Game-Worn Road Jersey: a light-blue flannel button-down garment with the script-style “P” logo embroidered in maroon to a white twill plate on the chest and “46” sewn to the back and right front in like fashion. Maroon trim lines the shoulders and sides, while the collar’s interior is home to a swatch with “Lis” stitched in black cursive. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “42” label and a chain stitched “1970” identifier.

Danny Ozark 1976 Philadelphia Phillies Game-Worn Road Jersey: a light-blue knit zippered garment with the script-style “P” logo sewn to the left breast in red-on-white twill, “3” sewn to the back and right front and “OZARK” arched on a nameplate atop the back number in like fashion. A Liberty Bell-themed “76” patch adorns the left sleeve, while the right sleeve is home to a National League Centennial logo patch. Red-on-white trim lines the shoulders and sides, while the satin-lined collar is home to a swatch with “Ozark” stitched in black cursive. The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “50” label and a swatch with chain-stitched identifiers reading: “50 76 Set 2.” Moderate wear is evident with minimal puckering about the twill components. This all-original apparel item hails from the club’s first-ever 100-win season and first postseason qualifier since 1950.
