    Description

    1999 Mark McGwire Game Worn Jersey. Big Mac capped baseball history's greatest home run output in two consecutive seasons this year, adding sixty-five round-trippers to his record-setting seventy in 1998 for an outrageous sum of 135. The home white St. Louis Cardinals gamer exhibits light but evident use from a season that saw McGwire flirt with the .700 slugging mark, featuring the classic chenille birds and bat logo on the chest, with number "25" in red and navy tackle twill below. "McGwire 25" appears on verso. Proper "Rawlings" label is affixed at left front interior tail, joined by size "52" and "Set 1 1999" flap tags. Following the conventional market wisdom that smart investors buy when the market is down, this jersey finds itself ripe for the picking by the collector confident that the doors of Cooperstown will eventually swing open for the red-headed slugger. When the pharmaceutical hysteria finally dies down, you're likely to see McGwire rise back up to his rightful position in the hobby market. LOA from Russek/Imperato. LOA from Lou Lampson.
