    2010's Rico Petrocelli Spring Training Worn & Signed Jerseys Lot of 3 from The Rico Petrocelli Collection. Spring training has always been a time for old timers to reconnect with the game, hang out with old buddies and make some new ones. This trio of "Cool Base" navy jerseys were sported by Petrocelli down in Florida, and signed by him in bold sharpie on the rear numerals. Sizes are Large, Extra Large and 48 respectively. Letter of provenance from Rico Petrocelli. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.

    More Information: The Rico Petrocelli Collection.

    At six feet tall and 175 pounds, Rico Petrocelli didn't look like a home run hitter, but his "Fenway Stroke" was remarkably effective at surmounting the legendary Green Monster, and his forty dingers in 1969 stood as record for shortstops until Alex Rodriguez claimed the title in 2002. Petrocelli ranks with the most beloved Red Sox of the post-war era, but he grew up an avid New York Yankees fan and Mickey Mantle in particular. It was Petrocelli himself who closed the book on the Mick's glorious career, catching Mantle's pop-up on September 28, 1968.

    But it's the Impossible Dream year of 1967 for which Petrocelli is best remembered today, a season that saw him earn the starting shortstop role for the American League All-Star team and club two home runs in Game Six of the World Series to set up a decisive Game Seven, unfortunately against the 1968 National League Cy Young and MVP Award winner Bob Gibson.

    Rico himself is the consignor of this exciting collection of personal mementos from his many years in baseball, as a player, coach and broadcaster. Each lot will be accompanied by a letter of provenance from the two-time All-Star and member of the Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame.
