1993-1996 Mark McGwire Oakland A's Road Jersey
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $1,175.00
Addendum: Please note that the printed catalog description identifies this jersey as dating from between 1993 to 1996. While this is accurate, the jersey can be dated with certainty to precisely 1993, and the modified online description below reflects this. We greatly appreciate the feedback provided by the very knowledgeable collector who made us aware of this, allowing us to correct and improve this description. Thanks, Rudy!
Mark McGwire Oakland A's road jersey dating to 1993. The gray knit jersey is lettered "Oakland" across the front and features the number "25" on both the left breast and reverse. "McGwire" is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numbers are appliquéd in green on gold tackle twill. Situated on the left front tail are a "Russell Athletic 48" label and a flag tag reading "2 inch Extra Length." Although the jersey was issued without a year tag, it can be dated to the 1993-1996 period based upon the style of the manufacturer's tag, and dated precisely to 1993 as follows: The Oakland A's "Elephant" patch appears on the left sleeve. The A's wore this patch only in 1993 and 1994. In 1994 the A's also wore the MLB 125 patch, which this jersey does not have, thus dating this jersey to precisely 1993. The jersey is completely original, with no alterations, and displays light use. McGwire was one of the top sluggers in the game in 1993 and just five years later he became the first player to break Roger Maris' long-standing single-season home-run record. McGwire finished his career with 583 home runs, which places him eighth on the all-time list. Graded A5 by MEARS (no post-1987 jersey can achieve a higher grade than A5 without additional provenance). This is one of eleven Mark McGwire Oakland A's jersey listed in the MEARS census, all of which are graded A5. LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
