Donned by bespectacled reliever John Pregenzer during his 1963 rookie campaign, this game-worn, gray, button-down jersey features black-on-orange twill identifiers (a departure from 1950s felt) and proper "MacGregor" tagging. All original, this stunning example shows no repairs or alterations. Full photo LOA from Dave Miedema. Additional details on our website.

This flannel garment features (7) cream-colored buttons, "SAN FRANCISCO" arched across the chest in black-on-orange double twill and "40" sewn to the back in like fashion. Black-and-orange piping lines the collar and sleeve endings, while the collar is home to both a "MacGregor" size "46" label and a felt strip tag with a chain-stitched cursive notation of "Prengenzer John" (sic). Sewn to the left front tail's interior, a "MacGregor" tag denotes "1963 SET 1." Pregenzer appeared in six contests in 1963 and wore number "18" the following season. The jersey shows moderate wear with areas of perspiration-induced discoloration. There are four holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventalation. Additionally, a faded handwritten notation of "ZENK" within the collar suggests subsequent spring training use by Giants farm hand Michael Zenk, who played briefly in 1966 for the club's Magic Valley Cowboys affiliate (Pioneer League).
