Rare Old Vtg 1950's Champion Sweatshirt Running Man Runner Tag Hoodie Shirt For Sale
** VERY SCARCE **
RARE OLD VTG 1950's CHAMPION RUNNING MAN WESTERN ILL STATE HOODIE SWEATSHIRT SHIRT
This offering is for an old original circa 1950's Western Illinois State Hoodie Sweatshirt made by Champion. The original tag is still in place on inside of the bottom knit waistband and reads "CHAMPION PROCESSED SPORTSWEAR" and with the now famous Champion Running Man logo. The sweatshirt features a hood with a 7½" long Conmar zipper at the neck and two front pockets. The sweatshirt is made of a soft thick dureen type material that I believe is likely a wool rayon blend. The exterior is a dark navy blue and the inside is lined in white. The condition is simply outstanding, especially so when taking the 60 to 70 year old age into consideration. There is a bit of wear at the corners of the pockets and on the ends of the knit cuffs have some wear as well. One of the cuffs also has two small holes, all as seen in our close-up photo's both above and below. I found two or three very small less than ¼" holes in the body of the shirt and a bit of scattered soiling but noting of a serious note. Lastly, the Western Illinois State printed lettering on the back has mostly worn away and is actually easier to read in our photo's due to the flash than it is in person. The condition is as stated, simply wonderful. There is no wear other than as noted, there are no rips, no tears and no repairs and the sweatshirt displays beautifully. There is no size tag in the sweatshirt but based on the measurements I would say it's a Large to Extra Large. The actual current measurements are given below, taken with the sweatshirt laying flat:
Shoulder seam to shoulder seam 26"
Length from neckline to bottom of shirt 23"
Chest pit to pit 24" or a dia of 48"
Waist unstretched side to side at top of waistband 17" or a dia of 34" dia.
Sleeve length shoulder seam to bottom of cuff 22"
This great vintage 1950's Champion Running Man Sweatshirt will make an excellent addition to someone's collection, shouldn't it be yours!!! If any further assistance is needed just drop me a note with any questions you may have and I will respond ASAP.
