1959 Sam Jones Game Used San Francisco Giants Jersey

1959 Sam Jones Game Used San Francisco Giants Jersey

San Francisco Giants home jersey worn by Sam Jones during that 1959 season. This cream-colored flannel button-down garment features "GIANTS" arched across the chest in black felt-on-orange twill characters, with the mound ace's number "19" sewn to the back in like fashion. Orange-and-black trim lines the neck and sleeve openings, and, situated on the tapered left front tail, a "TIM McAULIFFE" manufacturer's label is accompanied by a "'59" tag. Within the collar, a felt tag bears an embroidered notation of "Sam Jones" (to differentiate between Sam and teammate Gordon Jones). Moderate wear. Right-hander, Sam "Toothpick" or "Sad Sam" Jones was among the game's most dominant hurlers during his 12-year career. Jones led the National League in strikeouts three times: 1955, 1956, and 1958. On May 12, 1955, he no-hit the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-0 at Wrigley Field, becoming the first African American in Major League history to pitch a no-hitter. He also was part of the first all-black American League battery in 1952. While playing for the San Francisco Giants during the 1959 campaign, Jones had a league and career-best season winning 21 games while logging a stingy 2.83 ERA. He also pitched the first game ever played at Candlestick Park, San Francisco, on April 6, 1960; a 3-1 win over St. Louis, giving up only 3-hits. The same year, on September 26, 1959, Jones pitched his 2nd no-hitter to beat St. Louis, 4-0.
