Photo-Match: Photo-matched to AP 00051001930. May 10th, 2000 which was Rickey's last multi-hit game as a New York Met. Comes with Davious Photo-Matching LOA.

All-original 2000 New York Mets jersey was game worn by MLB stolen base king Rickey Henderson. Gray road top has tagging sewn inside the tail with Rawlings Authentic, size 44, two "minus 1 inch" tags (one for sleeve length, one for body), and Set 1 2000. New York is across the chest of the button-front top in blue-on-orange-and-black 3-D style letters, with number 24 on front and back in same style, name in individual letters above rear number. Fine use is displayed and the jersey is photo-matched to the Mets game of May 10, in which Henderson went 2-for-4 with a stolen base in a 13-9 loss at Pittsburgh, marking his last multi-hit game with the team. It's difficult in the modern era to appreciate his game-changing base stealing prowess, which struck fear into every opposing team. Rickey's 1,406 career stolen bases ranks as one of MLB's unassailable records, particularly when one considers that a player could average 70 steals over a 20-year career and still come up just short with 1,400.
