    2011 Justin Verlander ALDS Game Three Worn Detroit Tigers Jersey. Mention certain years to a serious baseball fan and a name will instantly jump to mind. 1927? Ruth. 1961? Maris. Well, you can bet that 2011 will forever after be remembered as the Year of Verlander. Check the scorecard: American League Triple Crown (24 wins, 250 K's, 2.40 ERA), American League Cy Young, American League MVP, The Sporting News Player of the Year, and another no-hitter to boot. Pitching dominance incarnate.

    The Tigers' top ace yet again showcased his overpowering stuff to a baffled Yankees batting order in the third game of the American League Divisional Series, retiring eleven on strikes and hitting triple digits on the radar gun fifteen times in 120 pitches to move Motor City to within a game of a League Series berth. Presented is the home white jersey worn on the mound for this elite performance and bearing holographic sticker certification from Major League Baseball for the most water-tight provenance possible.

    Constructed of lightweight "Cool Base" fabric, the shirt sports the classic Old English "D" over the heart in navy tackle twill, and "Verlander 35" on verso. Sparky Anderson memorial patch is applied to right sleeve. Lower left front tail holds "Majestic Authentic Collection" label, where the MLB authentication sticker and a markered notation of some form reside. Below is an embroidered swatch announcing "35 48 '11 441." A solid single game's wear is evident. One of the most important jerseys from the 2011 season to enter the collecting hobby, and likely one that the Hall of Fame would love to display in about fifteen or twenty years. MLB Authentication. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
