1961 Don Newcombe L.A. Dodger Game Used Uniform
At 6'4" and 220 pounds, with a molten fastball and a beak that resembled a hawk's, "Big Newk" was a fightful sight. Newcombe, who came to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1949 and in '56 went an amazing 27-7, is still the only pitcher to win the Rookie of the Year, MVP, and Cy Young awards. The classic gray flannel jersey is from 1961 when after finishing his career with the Indians he returned to the L.A. Dodgers as a coach. "Los Angeles" is on the chest in stitched blue felt as is "36" in red on the front, blue on verso. Tagging on tail is "Spalding 48" with "Newcombe 61" embroidered in blue cable stitching. The pants have "MacGregor 42" on inner waistband and "36 42 31" embroidered in red stitching. Fabulous use on both items.
