Setting the precedent for lights-out pitching that brought the Phillies their second-ever World Series crown, southpaw Cole Hamels sped through the club's minor League ranks, making lasting impressions at Lakewood, Clearwater, Reading and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Hamels wore the offered jersey during his brief (and productive) tenure with the Class AA Reading Phillies. With the club for all of three outings at the tail end of the 2005 season, Hamels went 2-0 and fanned 19 in as many innings. In doing so, the 22-year-old prospect wore this white knit, red-pinstriped button-down garment with “Phillies” sewn across the chest in red-on-white twill (with blue stars dotting the “i”s). In like fashion, “9” is sewn to the back and left sleeve and “HAMELS” is arched on a nameplate atop the back number. On the tapered left front tail, a “Diamond Digs” label denotes size “46.” Original and unaltered, the jersey shows wear consistent with Hamels' brief tenure. Identical in design to the parent club's jerseys, this was an appropriate garment for Hamels, who showed he was the real thing from the moment the club signed him. Accompanying is a COA signed by Reading Phillies General Manager Scott Hunsicker.
