Outstanding 1950 New York Giants home jersey as worn by infielder Eddie Stanky.  Stanky made his debut in 1943 with the Chicago Cubs, and was traded to Brooklyn in 1945, after which his career began to take off.  A srappy sparkplug with a keen batting eye, Stanky replaced Billy Herman in 1945 as Herman joined the Navy, and immediately became a fan favorite, drawing a then-record 148 bases on balls and scoring 128 runs to lead the National League.  A member of the 1948 pennant-winning Boston Braves, Stanky had a .524 on-base percentage despite being injured.  After the 1938 season, Stanky was traded to the New York Giants for the 1950 season, where he would put it all together for his single best offensive season.  In 1950, Stanky batted .300 and drew 144 walks for an outstanding .460 batting average.  He made the All-Star team and finished third in the MVP voting for Leo Durocher's Giants.

His jersey was one of the prizes of Ted Patterson's outstanding jersey collection, a gorgous MacGregor Size 42 flannel with all original tagging, stitching, team lettering and numbering.  The jersey exhibits signs of light wear and appears in outstanding condition, the season ID flagged in the shirttail.  Two of the plastic buttons have been replaced and are visibly noticeable as the coloration is less yellowed than the originals.  The replaced buttons have cost the jersey one point on the MEARS grading scale, who have assigned the jersey a grade of A9.  A stunning example of an important vintage flannel as worn by a New York Giants fan favorite.
