Presented is 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 the restored “New York” lettering across the chest and includes a red, white, and blue silk World War I memorial armband on the left sleeve. It still has the proper Spalding manufacturer’s tag in the collar to this day, and has the player’s last name chain-stitched to the right in light brown thread, “Peckingpaugh” [sic]. The jersey also has custom-hemmed sleeves, vented by underarm eyelets, and seven four-hole charcoal buttons down the front.
The matching gray flannel pants incorporate a button-down fly and have the Spalding tag in the waistband, with “Peckingpaugh” chain-stitched below. The uniform also includes two pairs of Peckinpaugh’s navy blue stirrups. Peckinpaugh’s uniform is in great 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. The offered uniform is accompanied by a letter of opinion from MEARS Authentication, evaluating the jersey as “A7.5” with respect to characteristics and game use, and provenance from the Peckinpaugh Family.
The special red, white, and blue armband allows it to be dated back to 1918, a year in which Peckinpaugh turned more double plays than any other American League shortstop and led the league in assists. This is both a unique and incredibly sought-after early New York Yankees uniform, worn on the road by their captain.
