You are looking at the rarest of the rare in terms of Chicago Cubs artifacts. This is a game worn jersey from the 1955 Chicago Cubs season of Walker Cooper, an 18-season catcher for the Cardinals and Cubs. He was an 8-time All-Star!!! And, he was regarded as the top catcher throughout the 1940s and early 1950s. This is the ONLY game worn Walker Cooper jersey known. Ive never seen another 1955 Cubs gamer available to the public. And the fact that Cooper caught for the Cubs that season is an added bonus. Who knows how many putouts he was involved in during that season. Original Wilson tagging (size 46). Original chain stitched identifiers (25-1955-2-46) representing number-year-set # and size located inside the collar. The Cubs logo patch on front has been restored as it was stripped for use in another league (see below). On the inside of the jersey you can see the original stitch pattern of the unmistakable Cubs logo of this era. Everything else is TOTALLY ORIGINAL. Including the felt numbers on the back. The top of the zipper is breaking apart but the rest is connected. The Cubs responded, surprisingly, with some jerseys from the earlier part of the decade. The Cubs logo was stripped down since the high school was not called the Cubs. This jersey had sat in the high school coaches home for nearly 65 years. Undoubtably, to say these early 50s Cubs uniforms are rare would be an understatement. They, for the most part, have been lost to history. This is your chance to own an extremely rare Chicago Cubs artifact from this era. PLEASE NOTE: This item is GUARANTEED to pass any third party authentication (MEARS, SCG, etc).
