1984 Steve Garvey San Diego Padres Signed Game-Used Road Jersey
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $2,937.50
San Diego Padres road jersey worn by first baseman Steve Garvey during the club's pennant-winning season of 1984. Graded A10 by MEARS. The brown knit jersey is lettered "Padres" across the front and features the number "6" on the reverse. "Garvey" is lettered on the reverse above the number. All front letters and numerals are appliqued in yellow on orange tackle twill. All reverse letters are appliqued in yellow tackle twill. The initials "RAK" (in honor of owner Ray Kroc, who passed in January of that year) appear on the left sleeve in yellow tackle twill. A "Wilson 44" label is located in the collar. Both the uniform number and year ("6 84") are chain-stitched in white upon a brown strip tag situated on the left front tail. Garvey has signed the jersey in red marker (grading "8") on the number. The jersey is completely original, with no alterations, and displays moderate wear. Graded A10 by MEARS. Garvey batted .284 with 8 home runs and 86 RBI in 1984. He continued to shine in the National League Championship Series against the Cubs, earning MVP honors by batting .400 with 1 home run and 7 RBI, in helping to lead the Padres to their first pennant in franchise history. Garvey finished his career with 2,599 hits, 272 home runs, 1,308 RBI and a .294 batting average. When one also takes into consideration his 1974 National League MVP Award, ten All-Star Game appearances, and four Gold Glove Awards, a strong case can be made for his future induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame. This is an exceptional Garvey jersey dating from one of the most memorable seasons of his career. This jersey has been consigned to this auction directly from the personal collection/inventory of world-renowned bat and jersey authenticators David Bushing and/or Troy Kinunen. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,937.50
