    2016 David Ortiz Game Worn & Signed Boston Red Sox Jersey from Game-Winning Home Run Game vs. Yankees 4-29, MLB Authentic. Most players end their career with a whimper and are a shell of their former self. So how did David Ortiz end his two-decade run? Let's just say he wasn't stumbling around the outfield like Mays in '73 or Babe Ruth appearing with the Boston Braves in '35. Big Papi concluded his Hall of Fame career by having a year for the ages. Ortiz's final season resulted in these awe-inspiring numbers: .315 average, thirty-eight home runs and 127 RBIs. He even legged out forty-eight doubles, the second-best output of his twenty year career. All of this at age forty?

    This "Majestic size 50" jersey was worn by Ortiz when he hit a go-ahead home run against the dreaded Yankees April 29, 2016. It would home run #507 in Ortiz's career. The story of this jersey is so much more than just a home run though. Before the game that night, Ortiz met with his former teammate Kevin Millar who told the slugger of a young baseball fan battling a congenital heart defect. In true Big Papi form, Ortiz promised to hit a home run for the fan. Much like Babe Ruth did for young Johnny Sylvester, Ortiz did in fact homer to fulfill his promise.

    A Fanatics hologram (ZZ005947) rests on the back "3" number while a MLB hologram (JB 092634) is affixed to the Majestic size tag in the tail. Pine tar is visible near the back numbers and shoulder region. Ortiz signed the back "Final Season Game Used 4/29/16 vs. Yankees GW HR 2-4 2 RBI #507." The jersey is listed under "Game-used Jersey" in MLB's database. A curled Majestic 0730 tag is located inside. One of the finest Ortiz gamers from his final season. MLB Authentic JB 092634. Fanatics Authentic ZZ005947. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.

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