1995 Roger Clemens Boston Red Sox Road Jersey
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,175
Roger Clemens Boston Red Sox road jersey dating from the 1995 season. The gray knit jersey is lettered “Boston” across the front and features the number “21” on the reverse. “Clemens” is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in red on navy tackle twill. Situated on the left front tail are a “Russell Athletic 52” label, a “95” year tag, and a flag tag reading “2 inch Extra Length.” Original and unaltered, the jersey displays moderate wear. Clemens missed nearly half the 1995 season with a shoulder injury but still managed to win ten games for the Red Sox. Clemens’ Hall of Fame resume includes a record seven Cy Young Awards, one MVP Award, and 354 wins. Graded A5 by MEARS (no post-1987 jersey can achieve a higher grade than A5 without additional provenance). This is one of seven Roger Clemens Boston Red Sox jerseys listed in the MEARS census, with five graded at this level and only one graded higher (A7). Two years ago, before Roger Clemens' recent legal problems, a similar jersey (also from 1995 and with the very same MEARS grade) sold at REA for $4,700. The Clemens memorabilia market has been seriously affected by the events of the past two years, and many Clemens items now sell for a significant discount to their former levels. The final chapter has yet to be written, but whatever the outcome, no history of baseball will ever be complete without the story of Roger Clemens. This jersey has been consigned to this auction directly from the personal collection/inventory of world-renowned bat and jersey authenticator Troy Kinunen. LOA from Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $300. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,175
