"I was told I would never make it because I'm too short," said 5'8" Kirby Puckett. "Well, I'm still too short. It doesn't matter what your height is; it's what's in your heart." Kirby Puckett did make it - all the way to the Hall of Fame. He played 12 years in the Majors- all with the Minnesota Twins. The center fielder had 2,304 hits, with 207 home runs, and a lifetime batting average of .318. He had over 200 hits in five seasons, leading the American League in hits four times. He was a 6-time Gold Glover and a 6-time Silver Slugger and was on 10 All-Star teams. The front of the jersey shows "Twins" in red script with black trim. On the left chest is "33" in red numerals with black trim. On the lower left front tail is a Russell Athletic tag with washing instructions. The back of the jersey shows "34" in red numerals with black trim. Next to that is another tag, an Authentic Diamond Collection tag with a size "50". Under the above-mentioned tags is a "100% nylon" tag. The jersey has a beautiful large autograph on front. Puckett signed neatly in black marker, and he inscribed "#34". It is tagged "34-95" in the neck. The Velcro shirt was gifted to manager Cito Gaston. It has a size "50" tag on front. This is the signed jersey of a Hall of Famer.
