Description

Prospering on the hill despite anemic offensive support during his early days in Philly, Hall of Fame southpaw Steve Carlton secured pitching laurels and eventually, postseason recognition. As he anchored the staff in his second Fall Classic appearance in four seasons, Carlton wore this Phillies home jersey during the 1983 October tilt against Baltimore. The white knit zippered garment features a maroon pinstripe pattern, the script-style “P” logo sewn to the left breast in maroon twill, the since-retired “32” sewn to the back and right front in like fashion and “CARLTON” arched atop the back number in block-style characters. Maroon trim lines the shoulders and sides and a 4”-diameter Phillies 100th anniversary patch adorns the left sleeve. Within the cotton-lined collar, a strip tag features a chain-stitched cursive notation of “Carlton.” The tapered left front tail is home to a “Wilson” size “46” label and strip tag with chenille-stitched “84” and “2” identifiers. Of note is the 1984 tagging, which was tailored on jerseys worn in the 1983 NLCS and World Series with the intent to use them the following season (the left sleeve patch was exclusive to 1983 jerseys). Along with the 1983 Phillies, the 1971 San Francisco Giants and 1984 Chicago Cubs employed this practice. All-original and unaltered, the jersey shows light wear. Full photo LOA from Dave Miedema.
