    2003 Mariano Rivera Game Worn New York Yankees World Series Jersey. Note the order of the words in the title, and pay attention to our clarification to follow. This is a 2003 Mariano Rivera game worn jersey with a World Series patch. Clearly the jersey exhibits wear, but since some regular season jerseys were patched for Series use, it would be impossible to date the use to October definitively, particularly for a roadster without unique pinstripes to aid in photo matching. But this could be the one worn on the mound in the future Hall of Famer's single Fall Classic appearance in Miami, a Game Three save that would prove to be the final victory of the Yanks' season. At worst, it's a jersey worn in the regular season by the greatest closer in the game's history, bearing the number "42" which will be retired for the second time (Jackie Robinson being the first) when Mo finally hangs up his crazy cutter. "New York" arches gently across the chest between sleeves patched for the Yankee centennial and the Series. "Russell Athletic Authentic Collection" label appears in tail with "48 100% Polyester and "+2" Extra Length" flap tags and a "2003" strip tag below. Very solid wear for a superstar jersey, particularly for the role Rivera plays. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
