Right-fielder Rocky Colavito is a Cleveland Indians fan favorite, a nine-time All-Star who hit 20 home runs or better in 11 consecutive seasons, topping 40 home runs three times and 100 RBI six.  He hit four home runs in one 1959 game, and became the first outfielder in AL history to play an entire season without making an error.  He finished second in the American League Rookie of the Year voting in 1956, edged out by Hall of Famer Luis Aparicio.  In 1958, he posted what was arguably his best all-around season, batting .303 with 41 home runs and 113 RBI, leading the league in slugging percentage at .620 and finishing third in the MVP voting.  In his 14-year career, he hit 374 home runs, and is a member of the Cleveland Indians Hall of Fame.

Presented here is an outstanding Cleveland Indians home flannel, worn by Colavito in his incredible 1958 season.  The jersey, consigned from the collection of Ted Patterson, was likely given directly to Patterson by Colavito, with whom he had a friendly relationship.  The Wilson size 44 jersey contains all the appropriate tagging and has been signed by Colavito on the right breast.  In wonderful condition, the grade of A9 assigned by MEARS deducts one half point for a vintage restored patch, and an additional half point for light staining consistent with heavy use.  An exceptional game-worn jersey from a Cleveland Indians great, worn during the season that was arguably the best in his career.
