Near the tail end of one era and the dawn of another, these (2) game-worn pairs of Baltimore Orioles pants were respectively worn by: Dave McNally: 1967 home pants with “Wilson” tagging; Bobby Grich: 1972 road pants with “Wilson” tagging. Both show solid game wear. Accompanying is an LOA from Baltimore/Washington memorabilia expert Phil Wood. More on our website.
Dave McNally 1967 Baltimore Orioles Game-Worn Home Pants: cream-colored flannel leg wear with orange-and-black striped piping lining the outer legs. There are two cotton-lined back pockets, six belt loops and a four-button fly. Within the waistband, a “Wilson” tag has a handwritten notation of “37” and is accompanied by a flannel swatch with embroidered details reading “19-37-28 – 67-1.” Additionally, a handwritten notation of “FREY,” suggesting that the pants were re-issued to Orioles minor league manager Jim Frey. Phenomenal game use is evident with fabric pilling throughout. Amazingly, the leg openings have retained their elasticity.
Bobby Grich 1972 Baltimore Orioles Game-Worn Road Pants: gray knit leg wear with black-white-and-orange striped trim lining the outer legs and a black-white-and-orange striped elasticized waistband. There are two cotton-lined back pockets and a two-button zippered fly. Within the waistband, a “Wilson” size “34” label is accompanied by a swatch with embroidered identifiers reading: 3 73 34 24 Set 3.” Nice game wear attributes include a team repair to the back of the left leg, as well as expected loss of elasticity at the leg openings.
