    1961 Frank Howard Game Worn Los Angeles Dodgers Jersey. Frank Howard was an imposing figure as he stood 6-7 and towered over the plate. Pitchers had to feel at least a twinge of nervousness when the big man settled in. A year after winning the National League Rookie of the Year award, Hondo fit into this "Rawlings [size] 50" jersey in 1961. We bet there weren't too many orders for such a big jersey during this time period. The classic flannel button-up shows great big league use and is in its original state. "Dodgers" is brilliantly underscored on front and "25" radiates in single-color red felt. The reverse has "25" set against the cream colored flannel. Ventilation holes are installed under the arms. A Rawlings manufacturer's label is sewn in the tail while "Howard 61" is chainstitched below. The inner tail has a washing instructions label and "Set 1 1961" flag designator. "1" is markered in the collar. A pair of pants will attend although we are unable to attribute the use to anyone. No manufacturer's label or player identification is available on the "[size] 38" pants. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
