The 1951 season was most famous for Bobby Thompson's walk off homer to left field, the 'Shot Heard Round the World' in the bottom of the ninth of a tie breaking game for the National League Pennant against the Brooklyn Dodgers. The 1951 New York Giants National League Champs Athletic Grey T-shirt is a 90% cotton, 10% polyester combination (to eliminate shrinkage) athletic grey tee. The retro orange 'NY' symbol is screen printed across the chest and the left sleeve has a retro patch with the address of the old Polo Grounds at the corner of 155th Street & 8th Avenue. The Cooperstown Collection label is also embroidered above the bottom hem. The Dodgers had a 13 1/2 game lead in mid-August, but the Giants and Dodgers were tied at season's end. With the extra games tied at a game apiece, Thompson sent a Ralph Branca pitch over the left field wall at the Polo Grounds in the bottom of the ninth for a 5-4 win and a date with the Yankees in the World Series. The World Series was won by the Yankees (four games to two), but the year was more famous for the Russ Hodges call on the local Giants Radio broadcast with the famous jubilant ' The Giants Have Won The Pennant! The Giants Have Won The Pennant! The Giants Have Won The Pennant!' audio call of the moment at the Polo Grounds on October 3, 1951. Get your 1951 New York Giants National League Champs Athletic Grey T-shirt and celebrate that great moment in baseball.
Message From The Chairman: Our staff decided that it was time to bring back some really great retro logo tees. The New York Giants iconic interlocking orange 'NY' symbol made famous in the fifties was a must for retro fans. Our staff worked with our supplier to dig up a memorial patch to the Polo Grounds and placed it on the left sleeve of this special tee.
