Description

A New York-born right-hander who authored an 18-10 mark over parts of five seasons (1951-1955) with the New York Giants, Al Corwin was a principle on two pennant-winning teams. These vintage diamond keepsakes were worn and used by Corwin during his final two seasons. Includes: 1954 World Series Bat: a Hillerich & Bradsby (32.4-oz/34”) “S2” block-letter model turned for Corwin’s use in the 1954 Fall Classic. Uncracked, the white ash weapon shows minimal use (perhaps batting practice) as Corwin’s services weren’t needed during a four-game sweep of Cleveland; 1955 Game Worn Giants Road Uniform: a gray flannel ensemble with black-on-orange felt identifiers and proper “Tim McAuliffe” tagging. Light wear. Full photo LOA from Dave Miedema (for uniform). More on our website.

Al Corwin 1955 Game-Worn New York Giants Road Jersey a gray flannel button-down garment with “NEW YORK” arched across the chest in black-on-orange felt and “41” sewn to the back in like fashion. Black-and-orange striped piping lines the collar and sleeve endings. Within the collar, a felt strip tag has “Corwin” embroidered in black cursive. The tapered and vented left front tail is home to a “Tim McAuliffe” label and stitched identifiers reading “42 4 in 1955.” There are four holes (as tailored) under each arm to facilitate ventilation.

Al Corwin 1955 Game-Worn New York Giants Road Pants gray flannel leg wear with six belt loops, a four-button fly and two cotton-lined back pockets. Black-and-orange striped piping lines the outer legs while the cotton-lined waistband features a “Tim McAuliffe” label flanked by chain-stitched identifiers reading “34-26 ins” and “1955.” A felt strip tag sewn to the flannel interior has “Corwin” stitched in black cursive. There are four holes (as tailored) in the crotch to facilitate ventilation.

These items are all-original and unaltered and show light wear, as Corwin was released on May 29 after appearing in only 13 games.
