Mired in the throes of a franchise lull throughout the 1930s, the Boston Braves did sport some of the most appealing diamond attire in the bigs. This Braves road jersey was worn by right fielder Randy Moore during the 1934 and 1935 seasons. The gray flannel button-down garment features “BRAVES” arched across the chest in red-on-blue felt, while “7” is sewn to the back in like fashion. Within the collar, a vintage “Draper & Maynard” label is accompanied by a size “44” tag. LOA from Grey Flannel. More on our website.
Additional features include piping lining the collar, button path and sleeve endings. This appears to have faded from red to cream-colored. Additionally, Native American “Braves” Indian head logos are sewn to both the front center and left sleeve in multi-colored felt. There are six holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation. The vented left front tail is home to a chain stitched notation of “4.” Additionally, on the back, “7” is sewn in an area where it appears another number had previously been sewn and removed. These elements are consistent with Moore’s career. Moore wore the number “4” for the Braves during the 1933 and 1934 seasons; and switched to the number “7” in 1935. The all-original garment shows solid wear.
