    2002 Albert Pujols Game Worn Signed St. Louis Cardinals Jersey.

    Update: The Jack Buck and Darryl Kile patches were added at a later date by the original owner of the jersey. Steinmetz's letter of provenance states the jersey was worn early in the season as it lacked the memorial patches. These were added later by the purchaser.

    The St. Louis Cardinals persevered through the 2002 season despite playing with heavy hearts. In the span of just four days, the team was dealt two devastating blows. Beloved announcer Jack Buck died on June 18 while popular hurler Darryl Kile was found dead in his hotel room just days later. Both were honored with memorial patches - Buck on the right sleeve and Kile (partially disengaged) on the left of this Albert Pujols gamer. Pujols wore the offered "Rawlings size 48" home white jersey while dominating the competition. Staining is visible on the lower half of the front and reverse of the button-up garment. The Cardinals birds-on-a-bat logo is filled in with chenille threads on front. "5" is executed below the team reference in two-color while "Pujols 5" is situated on the reverse. The inner tail contains these labels: Rawlings, size and "Set 1 2002" flap. A letter of provenance from attends which is signed by Rob Steinmetz. Pujols signed the reverse in 9/10 ink. Light use shown throughout. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from LOA from Heritage Auctions. Auction LOA from SGC.
