The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: One fact speaks mountains about this veteran Giant. Of all four pennants captured by the Giants since 1923, Travis Jackson is the one player to appear on each of those teams. A collision the year before he joined the team nearly ended his life, so every day as a Giant is a bonus. The trading of Dave Bancroft the following year made way for Travis to become the regular shortstop and he has been there ever since. He’s played in four World Series including last year’s loss to the Yankees in six games. Travis managed to bat just .190.
