    1997 Mark McGwire Game Worn St. Louis Cardinals Jersey With Special MDA Patch & Team Letter. Mark McGwire became baseball's biggest name in the late '90's as he assaulted Roger Maris' single-season home run record. While there are a great deal of game-worn jerseys featuring Big Mac in his Cardinals' uniform, most have little provenance or trail. This represents a rare departure. Worn by McGwire during the team's Labor Day series in 1997 is this knit gem. Saddled on the left sleeve is a "Cardinals Care and MDA Labor Day" patch wore only for that one series. The jersey shows light, but definite, use as would be expected from a weekend series worn garment. Occupying the right sleeve is a Jackie Robinson 50 years patch. Each of the identifiers is created in two-color tackle twill. Discreetly placed in the inside are three pertinent labels: "Rawlings," "Set 1 1997" and size. McGwire responsibly penned his name on back in 10/10 felt tip and inscribed "2000" for good measure. Letter of provenance from Cardinals Care. Full LOA from Heritage Auctions. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
