    1997 Tony LaRussa Game Worn St. Louis Cardinals Jersey With Team Letter. Some loved him and some hated him, but Tony LaRussa was one of baseball's top tacticians. Three words are able to be added to the skipper's resume: Hall of Fame. The three-time World Series winning manager donned this "Rawlings [size] 46" jersey during his second season in St. Louis, one which didn't end in a champagne celebration. Light use is exhibited on the white knit jersey. All of the identifiers are crafted in two-color tackle twill. Taking residence on front is the Cardinals unmistakable birds on bat chenille-filled logo. LaRussa signed both sides in blue felt tip, and the autograph has saturated into the jersey mildly. Worth special mention is a 1997 Jackie Robinson Breaking Barriers patch, firmly entrenched on the right sleeve. Three labels are on the inner tail: "Rawlings," "Set 1 1997" and "[size] 46" flap tag. Letter of provenance from Cardinals Care. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
