Presented is a 2000 Boston Red Sox jersey worn during 2004 or 2005 by first base coach Lynn Jones, a former outfielder who played eight big league seasons. Jones was mostly a back-up outfielder, but he had his moments: he hit .296 in his rookie season with Detroit and .301 in 1984 when his Kansas City Athletics won the World Series, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in a cross-state battle in which Jones went 2-for-3 with a double and a triple. Jones was the Red Sox first base coach in 2004-05, during which time Boston won the 2004 World Series over the St. Louis Cardinals. The jersey is in home white, with red trim. "Red Sox" in red letters is across the chest, and "95" is in red numbers on the back. The back has no name. A tag on the lower left front outside tail reads "Russell Athletic". Another tag on the lower left outside tail reads "Dream Collection" and "40", for size. Under the aforementioned two tags is a tag that reads "100% Polyester" and under that tag is a tag reading "2000", for the year the jersey was initially issued. Overall, the jersey shows light use. The "2000" tag shows wear, and there is a very small stain inside the lower back, The enclosed Letter of Provenance from Jones, issued through Collecting Investments, states, "I wore this jersey during my time with the Red Sox in my position as first base coach." This is an opportunity to add a game-used Red Sox jersey to a collection.
