    1993 Jose Canseco Game Worn Texas Rangers Jersey with Photo Matches.
    Jose Canseco's career had many twists and turns. There were his MVP and World Series days from his tenure in Oakland, and there was the time with the Rangers when he experienced two infamous moments. On May 26, Canseco had a baseball bounce off his head and reach the stands in a made-for-television event. A mere three days later, Canseco tried his hand at pitching during a blowout loss to the Red Sox. He blew his elbow out and was lost for the season.

    This "Russell Athletic size 46" road jersey is photomatched to a series played in Milwaukee in April of 1993. According to Resolution Photomatching's research: "The photomatch was made to Getty Image #82977809. We confirmed that the photo was taken at Milwaukee County Stadium, which would pinpoint the probable dates that the photo could have been taken to 4/23/1993, 4/24/1993, or 4/25/1993, as those were the only dates of games that the Rangers played in Milwaukee in 1993." The firm was unable to photomatch the jersey to Canseco's infamous three day stretch, but it is highly probable he wore this road jersey during the games. Teams usually wore two sets of jerseys a season. Given the fact Canseco was gone for the year after his ill-timed pitching debut, it is likely this jersey saw those two games.

    The grey button-up knit garment shows good overall use and was purchased directly from the team after the season. "Texas" is sewn across the chest while "Canseco 33" is centered on back. The tail holds a Russell Athletic size tag, fabric content label and "1" Extra Body Length" flap tag. The left sleeve contains an Arlington Stadium 1972-1993 patch. Overall, one of the most important Canseco gamers we have offered. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
