Cleaning and restoring vintage Major League Baseball jackets (Part 1 of 5)

Davis pix

 

Ron Davis is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who played 11 years from 1978 to 1988.

Davis played for the New York Yankees (1978-1981) and Minnesota Twins (1982-1986) of the American League and the Chicago Cubs (1986-1987), Los Angeles Dodgers (1987) and San Francisco Giants (1988) of the National League. In 1981, he was selected to the American League All Star team.

Late last year, Ron rediscovered his New York Yankees equipment bag that had been in storage for almost 30 years. The equipment bag contained, amongst other memorabilia, 3 jackets from his days as a pitcher for the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants.

There was just one problem: rats had eaten through the equipment bag and had nested amongst his jackets. As a result, the jackets were covered in rat feces and rat urine.

So what to do?

Ron could either pitch those jackets into the trash or he could entrust them to RAVE FabriCARE for cleaning and restoration.

He chose the latter course of action. Over the next few days, we'll be posting before and after photos of three jerseys and the equipment bag.
