    1951 Roger Bowman Game Worn New York Giants Jersey - Thomson's "Shot" Season. Roger Bowman's career was spent between the Major Leagues and Minors. His five year run included a stint with his hometown New York Giants. Bowman wore this "Spalding size 40" jersey the same year Bobby Thomson hit The Shot Heard Round The World. Bowman was in the minors at the time of the hit but this flannel could have served one of the men who witnessed history. The jersey shows good overall use. Three tags are sewn in the collar: Spalding, size and "Bowman 38" (swatch). "51" is straight stitched into the tail. The "2" on back appears to be original but the "8" seems to be added along the way. Orange/black/orange piping surrounds the neck and sleeve ends. A team repair is found on front. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
