1963 Diego Segui Game-Worn Kansas City A's Durene Jersey
Diego Segui does have a footnote in Major League baseball. The righty was the only pitcher to hurl for the Seattle Pilots and the Seattle Mariners. Dubbed "The Ancient Mariner" when he resurfaced at the twilight of his career with the Mariners, Segui survived 15 big league seasons.
This size "42" jersey was worn by Segui in his second season - '63. According to one jersey source, almost all of the '63 Kansas City A's durenes were stripped after the season and relegated for use in the minors. This one was no different. The front "A" team insignia and verso name have been professionally restored. The 1963 season was unique because the team used oversized letters on the back so many of the verso names were nicknames or first names. The white/green/white piping has also been replaced. The jersey's numbers (two-color tackle twill) are original and have puckered remarkably. A Wilson size "42" tag is secured in the tail, along with a swatch reading "Set 3-63 no 23." Remains of where the front "A" was taken off are still visible, but the jersey has its original buttons and no holes. A fabulous durene which hearkens to the days of the unforgettable Charlie O.
