As popular and prolific a superstar as Ken Griffey, Jr., was, it comes as no surprise that his memorabilia has generated a surge of interest in the collectibles world. This signed 1989 Seattle Mariners road jersey was worn during the Hall of Famer's rookie year and is tough to beat, earning a perfect A10 grade from MEARS. Gray button-front top has blue piping and MARINERS across the chest in blue-on-yellow-and-blue 3-D style lettering. Rawlings MLB size 44, and Set 1 1989 tagging are sewn inside the tail near the left hip. Number 24 is below left of the name on front as well as on back; name is on a plate above the rear number, all in blue letters and numbers. Signed on the right front below the team name in 9/10 blue Sharpie and inscribed with his number 24. Junior's 630 career home runs total ranks 7th on MLB's all-time list, he earned 13 All-Star Game nods, and his exceptional fielding led to no less than 10 Gold Glove awards. Griffey Jr's 99.32% vote for Hall of Fame induction in 2016 was a record at the time, surpassed only by Mariano Rivera (100%, 2019), and Derek Jeter (99.74%, 2020), leaving him truly in a class among the game's all time elites. Comes with MEARS letter grading this jersey A10, plus JSA LOA for the autograph.
