    1985 Daryl Strawberry Game Worn New York Mets Jersey. The 1983 NL Rookie of the Year, an eight-time All-Star and four-time World Champion, Strawberry seemed destined for Cooperstown enshrinement before personal problems derailed his stellar career. Presented is a home white knit pinstriped jersey from those early years of his career when he was considered one of the best young stars in the Bigs. Almost identical to those worn during the glorious 1986 Championship season, the presented gamer features "Mets 18" in blue and orange tackle twill across the chest, with "Strawberry 18" similarly applied on verso. Interior collar holds a proper "Rawlings [size] 42" label with "Set 1 1985" and "4 Inch Extra Length" identifiers to the right. Embroidered "18 42 1" swatch is below, denoting jersey number, size and set number. A blue sharpie signature (10/10) with "1985" notation resides below. Solid wear is evident, with a few spots of what appears to be tobacco juice at the right sleeve and lower front tail causing no real distraction. With a few different choices made, this jersey could have easily found itself behind plexiglass at the Hall of Fame. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph). Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph).
