Although Paul “Pee-Wee” Wanninger only had a baseball career that lasted three Major League seasons, he is forever tied to one of the most iconic moments in baseball history. On June 1st, 1925 in a game between the New York Yankees and Washington Senators, Lou Gehrig started his phenomenal 2,130 consecutive games played streak when he pinch-hit in the 8th inning for Wanninger, and took over at first base for Wally Pipp. Gehrig started the next game at first base in place of Pipp and never looked back, going on to have one of the greatest and most durable careers in Major League Baseball history. Offered is a 1925 Wanninger Yankee flannel jersey, the same season Gehrig pinch hit for him. Beneath the rear collar is the Spalding manufacturer’s tag. Adjacent reads “Extra 42” embroidered in chain stitching. Across the front reads “NEW YORK” in navy blue felt. The jersey shows baseball related staining throughout which appears to be tobacco and minor holes on the back. An incredibly rare flannel jersey from a player with ties to one of the most historic moments in baseball history. This jersey is properly tagged, was presented to us as game-used and in our opinion shows outstanding use. Accompanied by a Wanninger Family LOA and a LOA from Photo-Match.com grading the jersey an 8.
