    Early 1980's Pawtucket Red Sox Game Worn Jersey Attributed to Wade Boggs. As a college ballplayer, when every other batter was using aluminum, Boggs was the only hitter to use wood. His explanation was simple--when he got to the Major Leagues, he'd have to use wood, so why not start now? Presented here is an artifact from another step on the road to the Big Leagues, and eventual Hall of Fame immortality. This red and white mesh jersey from the BoSox Pawtucket farm team was once worn by this 3,000 Hit Club member before he had recorded MLB hit number one. "Pawtucket Red Sox" is screened to the chest, with Boggs' number "18" screened on verso. "Wilson [size] L" tag is inside collar. Included is a letter of provenance from a Pawtucket front office member attesting to Boggs' use of the shirt. An exciting chance at a rare Hall of Fame "pre-rookie!" MEARS Authentic. LOA from MEARS. LOA from Lou Lampson.
