Breaking in as a 27-year old rookie, Jansen became a key member of the New York Giants' starting rotation from 1947 to 1953, twice winning more than 20 games. In his rookie major league season in 1947, Jansen won 21 of 26 decisions, leading the National League in winning percentage. 808, and finished second in the voting for Rookie of the Year behind the Brooklyn Dodgers' Jackie Robinson.
Jansen pitched five innings of one-hit scoreless baseball in the 1950 All-Star Game, which lasted 14 innings. In 1951, Jansen paced the NL-champion Giants with 23 victories and helped lead their improbable August and September comeback against the Dodgers. Jansen was the winning pitcher in the famous game on October 3, 1951, featuring the'Shot Heard Round the World. Jansen, however, lost his only two decisions in the 1951 World Series.
Jansen also won 19 games (1950) and 18 games (1948) for the New York club. 5 times World Champion (1956, 1958, 1961-63) and 8 times All-Star. A very special, fancy autograph with information personally signed personally for us by Moose Skowron at the 2002 NSCC.
