2006 Dontrelle Willis Florida Marlins Signed Road Jersey
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $-
Dontrelle Willis Florida Marlins road jersey dating from the 2006 season. The gray knit jersey is lettered "Florida" on the front and features the number "35" on the left breast and reverse. "Willis" is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in four-color tackle twill (black/silver/teal/white). A Florida Marlins team patch appears on the left sleeve. The uniform number, size, year, and team inventory code ("35, 54, 06 431") are stitched in black upon a white strip tag on the left front tail; directly above a "Majestic" label. The notation, "6-20," is written in black marker on the manufacturer's label, possibly indicating the date on which Willis wore this jersey (the jersey is not accompanied by any supporting team or player documentation attesting to its use in a game). A flag tag on the interior left tail reads "+2 inch Body." Willis has signed the jersey, "Dontrelle Willis 35," in silver paint pen (grading "10") on the reverse numeral "5." Original and unaltered, the jersey displays moderate wear, including a few light stains on the reverse. Dontrelle Willis is considered by many to be one of the top left-handed pitchers in baseball and in 2003, his rookie season, he helped lead the Florida Marlins to their second World Championship in franchise history. In 2005 he recorded his finest overall season to date, winning 22 games while posting a 2.63 ERA. Willis went 12-12 with a 3.86 ERA in 2006, which was his penultimate season with the Marlins (he was traded to the Tigers following the 2007 season). Graded A5 by MEARS (no post-1987 jersey can achieve a higher grade than A5 without additional provenance). This is one of nine Dontrelle Willis Florida Marlins jerseys listed in the MEARS census, with only two graded higher. LOAs from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and James Spence/JSA. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $-
