The Giants of Major League Baseball did not start their tenure in the City by the Bay. Founded in 1883 as the New York Gothams, the team was renamed the New York Giants three years later and then eventually relocated from New York City to San Francisco in 1958. Offered here is an official San Francisco Giants Seals Stadium pocket schedule from the team’s inaugural season in northern California. A trifold, the schedule features an illustration of a pitcher throwing a fastball on the cover, a Falstaff Brewing Corp. advertisement in the middle, and a Giants seating chart at their new home (Seals Stadium) on the back. Once opened all the way up, the team’s complete 1958 playing schedule is revealed. The Giants finished third in the National League that season with a record of 80-74. Perennial All-Star Willie Mays led the team offensively by batting .347 with 29 home runs and 96 runs batted in. The pocket schedule remains in VG-to-Mint condition.
