George Scharein, Pete Sivess, Pinky Whitney, Jim Shilling, Bobby Bragan, John Podgajny—all wore #20 during the 1937-42 period. But Bragan's size and tenure (two years) make him the most likely candidate. The Mitchell & Ness cold-weather dugout jacket is of a rare early style for its kind and features a bright gabardine exterior, nice original buttons and a large felt "20" inside. The chain-stitched name label is missing or removed (perhaps when changed from player to player). Moderate wear overall with some subtle moth holes in the red-and-white-striped ribbed wool trim.
