A Sandy Koufax Game Used Jersey

Yes, they actually do exist. This is a Sandy Koufax game-used Dodgers jersey from his 1966 Cy Young Award winning season being sold through Grey Flannel Auctions. It's in pretty good shape and is expected to sell for a bundle. I don't know the exact numbers, but not many actual gamers of Koufax exist on the market. From my understanding, it's just a handful. From the auction description:
On the left front tail of this grey flannel road jersey is the “Rawlings” manufacturer’s tag with size “44”. Embroidered directly underneath in navy blue chain stitch is “Koufax” and “66” indicating player name and jersey year, respectively. Below is a wash instructions label with attached flag tag “SET 1 1966”. Across the front is “Los Angeles” done in blue felt. Player number “32” appears on front in red felt and on back in blue felt. Koufax has signed the right breast in black marker adding the inscription “To Bob Best Wishes” rating an 8.
Who the heck is Bob? Anyway, it started with an opening bid of $10,000.00, but has already well eclipsed that value. Today, with 8 days remaining in bidding, it sits at $50,556.00. Holy Cow!

  1. Bob might be bob hendley the pitcher that koufax threw the perfect game against while hendley only gave up only one hit and the run was unearned
    If that is the case then it is the rare case of personalization making the autograph worth more
