Description


Roger Peckinpaugh's game-used New York Yankees road uniform from the 1918 season, including his jersey and pants. The button-down gray flannel jersey features "New York" (restored) across the chest and features a red, white, and blue silk World War I memorial armband on the left sleeve. It retains the proper Spalding manufacturer's tag in the collar, and has the player's surname chain-stitched to the right in light brown thread, "Peckingpaugh" [sic]. It has custom-hemmed sleeves, vented by underarm eyelets, and seven four-hole charcoal buttons down the front. The matching gray flannel pants feature a button-down fly and have the Spalding tag in the waistband, with "Peckingpaugh" chain-stitched below. Also includes two pairs of Peckinpaugh's navy blue stirrups. In fine condition, with significant evidence of use including general wear and light staining, some fraying to the white portion of the tricolor armband, and some fraying to bottoms of the pant legs. Accompanied by a letter of opinion from MEARS Authentication, evaluating the jersey as "A7.5" with respect to characteristics and game use.

Any authentic, game-used uniform from the deadball era is virtually unheard of—that this comes from one of baseball's early stars, and arguably its most legendary franchise, makes this example truly remarkable. Known for his steady defense and stable demeanor, Peckinpaugh served as the Yankees' captain from 1914 to 1921. The special red, white, and blue armband allows us to date it precisely to 1918, a year in which Peckinpaugh turned more double plays than any other American League shortstop and also led the league in assists. A unique and exceptionally desirable early New York Yankees uniform, worn on the road by their capable captain.

Provenance: The Roger Peckinpaugh Family.
