Description



Summoning fond recollections of football (and winning football, at that) in the horseshoe-shaped palace on 33rd and Ellerslie, this Colts sideline jacket was worn during the 1960s as Baltimore took America by storm as a power on both the gridiron and diamond. Tailored somewhat locally by the Eddie Leonard Sporting Goods store in Annapolis, Maryland, the blue wool button-down garment features “COLTS” sewn across the upper back in angled white twill characters. There are two front pockets with leather triangle accents at each end, while blue-and-white striped stretch ribbed cotton lines the waistline, sleeve endings and 6” collar. Within the collar, a vintage “Eddie Leonard” label is accompanied by a size “52” flap tag. There are six holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation. The gridiron relic retains its vibrant color and shows moderate wear with scattered tiny holes in the fabric and scratches/paint loss on the blue metallic buttons. Absent of a name or numeric identifier, we cannot attribute the jacket to a specific player or coach, but the label and style of the jacket is consistent with Colts gamers of the referenced era.
