    1993 Ryne Sandberg All-Star Game Worn & Signed Chicago Cubs Jersey--Photo Matched To All-Star Game.

    UPDATE: This lot is now accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Resolution Photomatching.

    "Hit a home run - put your head down, drop the bat, run around the bases, because the name on the front is more - a lot more important than the name on the back." - Ryne Sandberg.

    That credo help drive Ryno to nine Gold Gloves, an MVP, and a place in the Hall of Fame. It also served to create the same type of bond with Chicagoans as was forged by Hull, Sweetness, and Jordan.

    The road gray knit jersey presented was worn by Ryne in his tenth and final All-Star Game at Camden Yards in Baltimore. "Chicago 23" and "Sandberg 23" appear on the front and back, respectively, all sewn on in red/blue/white tackle twill. Meanwhile, the team disc patch and the Midsummer Classic patch radiate from the left and right sleeves, respectively. Tags include a "23-44-1" swatch in the collar, with "Russell Athletic 44" and "2" Extra Body Length" labels in the tail. Furthermore, the front is signed, large and bold, in 9/10 vintage black sharpie. The jersey remains unwashed, with dirt remnants on the sleeves. Getty Images 614353524 features the same dirt pattern on the right shoulder from the July 13 All-Star contest. Another Getty Images (1402848) photograph shows the same fraying on the "O" on the team name. This image was taken July 4 when the Cubs and Rockies played.

    It is also important to note that this jersey saw action from the first half of the season, as well, evidenced by the outline of the Cubs disc patch on the right sleeve. That patch was moved to the left sleeve to accommodate the All-Star Game patch. LOA from Heritage Auctions. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
