2005 Ken Griffey Jr. Cincinnati Reds Alternate Jersey
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $1,527.50
Ken Griffey Jr. Cincinnati Reds alternate jersey dating from the 2005 season. The red knit jersey features the club’s team logo on the left breast and displays the number “30” on the right breast and reverse. “Griffey” is lettered on the reverse above the number. All letters and numerals are appliquéd in tricolor tackle twill (white/red/black). A Reds team patch appears on the left sleeve. Located on the left front tail are a “Majestic” label, a “48” size tag, a tag reading “Property of the Cincinnati Reds 2005,” and a tag reading “+2 Body.” Original and unaltered, the jersey displays light wear. Despite missing over thirty games in 2005, Griffey still managed to post outstanding numbers, finishing the year with 35 home runs, 92 RBI, and a .301 batting average. One of only twenty-three players to hit over 500 home runs, Griffey needs just seven home runs this season to become a member of the ultra-elite 600 Home Run. His home-run total, combined with his ten Gold Glove Awards, 1997 MVP Award, and thirteen All-Star Game appearances all but guarantee him a spot in Cooperstown following his retirement. Graded A5 by MEARS (no post-1987 jersey can achieve a higher grade than A5 without additional provenance). This is one of eight Ken Griffey Jr. Cincinnati Reds jerseys listed in the MEARS census, with none graded higher. LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,527.50
