Lohrke gained the nickname Lucky when he was called off the Spokane (Western International League) team bus 15 minutes before its departure. Lohrke was headed for Triple-A; the bus was headed for disaster. It crashed into a ravine, killing eight players. Lohrke went on to become the Giants regular third baseman in 1947. In the neck of the jersey is the "MacGregor" label and size, "44." Below this is a white felt patch reading "Lohrke 17" in red chain stitch. Across the front of the jersey is the name "Giants" and on the back is the player number "17." The name and number have been done in black on orange felt. There is orange/black/orange piping around the neck and around the ends of the sleeves. After the 1950 season, the jersey was sent down to the minors, at which point a minor league patch was placed on the left sleeve. The patch is missing from this shirt. The jersey shows game-use and with the exception of the missing patch, appears to have no other alterations of any kind.
