Description1987 Ryne Sandberg Game Worn Chicago Cubs Jersey--Photo Matched! Ten All-Star berths, nine Gold Gloves, seven Silver Slugger bats, a home run crown, and a National League MVP Award were the spoils of war for this Hall of Fame second baseman, one of the most popular Wrigley fixtures since the departure of Ernie Banks. This classic blue pullover knit is the road format that Sandberg wore throughout the first half of his service to the Windy City, the offered specimen dating to his fourth of ten consecutive seasons representing the Senior Circuit at the All-Star Game's second sack.
Circular team logo patches appear over the heart and left sleeve respectively, with "Sandberg 23" taking up residence on verso in red-on-white tackle twill. Interior collar bears "Rawlings [size] 42" label with embroidered swatch directly below announcing, "23 87 1 42T." Solid game wear is evident, and definitively assured by the experts at Resolution Photomatching who have conclusively matched the jersey to an undated photo of Sandberg at the plate. Another image of Sandberg at Dodger Stadium is deemed a probable match. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. LOA from Heritage Auctions.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
