The former home of "Bernie Brewer" and the fan favorite "Sausage Race," Milwaukee's since-razed County Stadium is better remembered as the home of the Milwaukee Braves—the only major league team to have never endured a losing season. Overnight National League darlings upon their move from Boston in 1953, the Braves paced the circuit in attendance for each of their first six seasons. Here offered is County Stadium apparel worn by one of the Braves' decidedly busy ushers. This deep-red knit button-down garment features two front pocket flaps (though the only accessible "pocket" resides within the right breast), 3-1/2"-wide lapels and a Braves logo silhouette stitch to the left breast (along with a "262" identifier). A cloth hanger is situated within the collar, and a size "42 Regular" identification tag is sewn to the interior pocket. All four jacket buttons and all four cuff buttons (each of which features a raised "M") remain intact. Light wear. LOA from Legendary Auctions.
