    2001 Enrique Wilson Game Worn World Series Jersey. In 2001, Wilson had booked a flight home to the Dominican Republic on November 12th, wanting to remain in New York for the victory parade following what would have been the team's fourth consecutive World Championship. But a weak blooper off the bat of Luis Gonzalez brought home the walk-off Series-winner for the Diamondbacks, and a disappointed Wilson returned home early. Shortly after take-off for the Flight 587 which would have contained Wilson as a World Champion, the plane plummeted into the Belle Harbor neighborhood of Queens, killing all 260 passengers and crew, as well as five on the ground. The noble Mariano Rivera, the decisive game's hard-luck loser, was quick to thank God for his own failure that saved his teammate's life. "I am glad we lost the World Series," he told reporters, "because it means that I still have a friend."

    The offered game worn jersey hails from that Fall Classic. A Russell Athletic size 46 road jersey was worn by Wilson during each of the four road games in the World Series. Right sleeve is adorned with the American League 100th anniversary patch while the left features the logo of the World Series and a black armband honoring the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Two-tackle twill sewn-on identifiers show solid season-long usage and the American Flag patch sewn over the MLB logo on the back color alludes to the fact that the shirt made many appearances over the course of the year. LOA from Yankees-Steiner Collectibles.

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