1962 Los Angeles Dodgers – Tommy Davis Game-Worn, Signed Home Jersey & PinGo Back
Out of stock
Tommy Davis considered going to the New York Yankees but all he needed was Jackie Robinson to convince him otherwise and sign with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Davis was called up from the minors and made his debut in September of 1959 in Los Angeles.
Presented is one of Davis’ game-worn jerseys from his breakout season in 1962 as the Dodgers moved into the new Dodger Stadium. He won the NL batting crown that season with a .346 average (27 HRs, 120 runs & nine triples) edging out HOFer Frank Robinson (.342). Davis won the same batting title the next season beating Roberto Clemente by six points.
The cream flannel home jersey sports the “Dodgers” script in felt across the chest. His numbers “12” are sewn to the back in blue felt and the left front in red. There are ventilation holes under each arm. A vintage Tim McAulliffe tag is featured on the front with two other including the year 62 and size 44. It should be noted that his name identifier was detached at some point due to age/wear. He did sign the shirt under the tagging in black pen with his accomplishments inscribed from the 1962 season – “1962 Batting Champ – .346 avg. – 153 RBI). Overall, the jersey shows wear, aging and some spotting. An oversized button featuring Davis is also included from the era.
