1968-69 Kentucky Colonels Worn Shooting Shirt
Inside the rear collar is the “Rawlings” manufacturer’s tag with size “48”. Across the front is “KENTUCKY” done in white on black tackle twill. The nameplate on back has been removed. On the inner left seam is a wash instructions flag tag. The shooting shirt is properly tagged, was presented to us as worn and in our opinion, show wear. Accompanied by a LOA from the San Diego Q’s Equipment Manager. Other than what is mentioned, there appear to be no further alterations of any kind.
