Ken Griffey Jr. turned the baseball world on its ear when he debuted in center field for the Seattle Mariners in 1989. Nicknamed "The Kid," Griffey’s exuberant play in the field and sweet swing at the plate attracted legions of fans as he made his way to a Cooperstown induction in 2016. This lot offers an authentic Ken Griffey Jr.-signed 1989 Seattle Mariners home jersey, numbered 92/240, mirroring the style he wore in his rookie season. The size L Mitchell & Ness jersey was released by Upper Deck Authenticated and includes MARINERS emblazoned across the chest in blue tackle twill outlined in yellow with Griffey’s number 24 appearing in blue tackle twill measuring five inches tall on the left side. Griffey signed his name in silver marker on the numeral "4" with the crash numbering ("92/240") appearing in silver on the "2." A year tag (1989) appears just below the Cooperstown Collection Mitchell & Ness tag on the left front side. The reverse includes his last name (GRIFFEY) across his shoulders in blue tackle twill letters measuring 3.5” tall stitched onto a white nameplate. His number is centered on the back in blue tackle twill measuring eight inches tall. Includes COA from UDA.
