Former New York Yankees infielder Jerry Coleman played all of his nine seasons in the Bronx and was apart of four World Series title teams and six American League pennant winners from 1949 to 1957. Following his playing career, Coleman would enjoy much success as a broadcaster where he received the Ford C. Frick Award of the National Baseball Hall of Fame for his broadcasting excellence and joined Joe Garagiola, Tony Kubek, Tim McCarver and Bob Uecker as one of the five former players to win that award.

Coleman wore this Spalding size 42 New York Yankees home pinstripe jersey during the 1955 season. This flannel jersey has the famous Yankees’ interlocking “NY” sewn on the upper left chest in navy blue felt. Embroidered in navy on the bottom front left tail is “Coleman” and “55 – 42”. The jersey was designed with eight buttons on the front and this shirt has the bottom button missing. The Spalding tag and size “42” patch are sewn on the inside back collar and on the inside front left tail is the wash tag with a “SET 1 1955” flag. The back of the jersey has the number “52” sewn on in navy felt. There are faint remnants of a “4” underneath the “5” on the back of this jersey as 42 was Coleman’s number, indicating that his jersey was most likely recycled for minor league use – a common practice for teams in that era. This jersey displays heavy game use and with toning present giving this a cream-colored look. There are numerous faded stains present throughout the jersey, along with some holes on the front, one below the “2” on the back and two holes on the bottom back tail. This jersey comes with a LOA from MEARS (315800) for the game use and has been graded an A5.
