    2016 David Ortiz Game Worn Unwashed Boston Red Sox Jersey from #527 Home Run Game MLB Authentic with Special Rod Carew Heart Patch!
    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, 38 home runs and 127 RBIs. He even legged out 48 doubles, the second-best output of his twenty year career. All of this at age 40?

    The man who led the Sox for fourteen years, Ortiz wore this "Majestic size 50" jersey when the Red Sox and Twins played July 21, 2016 at Fenway Park. The Sox trampled the Twins 13-2 behind an Ortiz home run - his 527th career blast. Both teams wore a special "Heart of 29" patch over their heart to honor Rod Carew's crusade to battle heart disease. "Red Sox" is correctly spaced across the front and divided by red braiding. A rubberized Majestic Flex Base tag is applied in the tail with a MLB hologram (JC098032) affixed. The MLB hologram has a session date of July 21, 2016 and has the product listed as a "Game used Jersey." A Fanatics hologram (ZZ0052317) is also affixed. The jersey is in an unwashed state and has pine tar on the shoulder region, namely the back of the left shoulder from where Ortiz rested his bat. Ortiz signed the reverse and inscribed "To Those that Love Me Boston My Home" in silver paint pen. The inner side has Majestic's "0730" inventory code. "Majestic #34 Ortiz 2016" is applied to a rubberized tag on the inside near the lowermost button. The jersey was once in a frame and the sides and back have glue remnants. MLB Authentic JC098032. Fanatics hologram ZZ0052317. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Auction LOA from SGC Authentic. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
