Description

Gary Sheffield was called up from the minors when rosters were expanded in September and made his major league debut on September 3, 1988. As a teenager, he got off to a fast start, with his first career hit being a home run off Mark Langston, though Sheffield finished the season with a .238 batting average and four home runs in 24 games. After a decline in play and several injuries, he found himself competing with Bill Spiers in a race for starting shortstop. After this, he was moved to third base and criticized the team, saying it was a black and white issue.

Presented is a Milwaukee Brewers game worn white pinstriped jersey of Gary Sheffield from 1988. The jersey originated from Sheffield himself.  His provenance indicates the superstar wore it during Spring Training.  So, the jersey is from his rookie era.  That season, “Shef” stayed in the Minors until he was called up later in September when the roster expanded.

Great use is shown throughout with fraying on the identifiers and soiling.  “BREWERS” is executed across the front in two-color blue/yellow tackle twill. The reverse numbers “25” are also in blue/yellow tackle twill. The front tail shows two Sand-Knit tags including the Brewers exclusivity tag and the [size] 44. Interior tags are sewn in the tail: “84 – 44 – CLARK”. The jersey was handed down from another player (Clark) to Sheffield for Spring Training. For added measure, Sheffield signed the front in blue felt tip (“8-9”) with the season it was from “1988” and his number then “#25”.

Also, included for provenance is a copy of the Sheffield letter from the auction house it sold at originally.

An 8×10 photo style match of him wearing #25 from Spring Training is included and was autographed by both Gary Sheffield and Doc Gooden in blue felt tip (“9”).
