Out of stock
Whitey Lockman was a first baseman and outfielder who batted left-handed and threw right-handed. He signed with the Giants as a 17-year-old during World War II and came to New York from the minor leagues in the midseason of 1945, just prior to his 19th birthday. He batted .341 in limited duty that season, but would hit over .300 only once more during a 15-year Major League playing career. Interesting note is that Lockman was the runner on second base when Bobby Thomson hit his historic “Shot Heard Round The World.”
Presented is one of Lockman’s game worn flannel jerseys from his time with the New York Giants. In the collar of the jersey is a white felt patch with the name “Lockman” in red chain stitch. Above it is the “MacGregor” label with the size, “42”. This particular label dates to 1945-52 era so this is from his first stint with the team. It should be noted, common for the era in recycling jerseys Lockman was “25” however there was a number change on this jersey as it is a “1” now. The flannel jersey is lettered “Giants” across the front and features the number “1” sewn on the verso. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in black on orange felt. A North Meadow baseball patch on the left sleeve was also added when the number changed. Overall, an extremely rare and desirable home jersey of Whitey Lockman.
