2006 Roger Clemens Houston Astros Home Jersey
Starting Bid - $300.00 , Sold For - $1,175.00
Roger Clemens Houston Astros home jersey dating from the 2006 season. The white knit pinstripe jersey displays the team name, “Astros,” embroidered across the front in multicolor stitching (black/tan/red/gray). The number “22” appears on the left breast and reverse. “Clemens” is lettered on the reverse above the number. All front numerals are appliquéd in red tackle twill. All reverse letters and numerals are appliquéd in tricolor tackle twill (black/tan/red). An Astros 2006 “45th Anniversary” patch appears on the right sleeve, while the left sleeve displays a team-logo patch. The manufacturer’s tags have been removed from the front tail (common for Clemens’ jerseys; removed at his request). Aside from the manufacturer’s tags having been removed, the jersey is completely original, with no other alterations, and displays light use. 2006 was Clemens’ penultimate season in the Major Leagues. He started nineteen games for the Astros, finishing the year with a 7-6 record and a 2.30 ERA. In addition to winning a record seven Cy Young Awards, Clemens is one of only twenty-two pitchers to win 300 or more games (his total of 354 places him eighth on the all-time list), and his 4,672 strikeouts is second only to Nolan Ryan. Graded A5 by MEARS (no post-1987 jersey can achieve a higher grade than A5 without additional provenance). This is one of nine Roger Clemens Houston Astros jerseys listed in the MEARS census, all which grade A5 or lower. LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
