Description



An integral component on the Orioles’ first World Series championship roster, as well as on Earl Weaver’s subsequent perennial A.L. East Kings, Paul Blair (and the Birds) peaked in 1969, with Blair launching a career-high 26 home runs and the Orioles winning a franchise-record 109 games. As he complied with his skipper’s mantra of “Pitching, Defense and Three-Run Homers,” Blair wore this Baltimore Orioles home jersey during that stellar ’69 campaign. The cream-colored flannel button-down garment features the script-style “Orioles” angled across the chest in orange twill-on-black felt, while block-style “6” numerals are sewn to the back and left front in like fashion. In black block-style felt characters, “BLAIR” is arched atop the back number, while orange-and-black piping lines the collar and sleeve endings. On the tapered left front tail, a “Wilson” label denotes size “40.” Just below, an outline from an additional tag remains, as does a visible impression of “69.” On the left sleeve, the outline remains from a since-removed MLB silhouette “100th Anniversary” logo patch. There are six holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation. All original with no repairs, this Memorial Stadium gamer is a glorious reminder of a dominating franchise that stressed fundamentals and its center fielder who lived up to the team philosophy with eight Gold Glove honors. Accompanying is a full photo LOA from Phil Wood.
