Toronto Maple Leafs Game Used Baseball Jersey 1952

 This is just a wonderful piece of Canadian Baseball history. This jersey was worn by the Toronto Maple Leafs of the International League. Jack Kent Cooke, born in Ontario Canada, owned the Leafs from 1951 to 1961. He left Canada in 1961 and three years later sold the ball club.  Cooke went on to own the Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Kings and most notably, the Washington Redskins of the NFL.

 This sweet body cover was used between 1951 and 1954, as evidenced by the picture below with Cooke. You can see the jersey is a button down and not a zipper as this one is. Zippers were used in earlier seasons. The Logo changed in 1956 and you can see a ’56 example on the site. Glad to have this in the Game Used Only collection. My Dad used to tell me about old Maple Leaf Stadium where the Leafs played.
