Part of the mob scene for the infamous "Grand Slam Single" in Game 5 of the 1999 NLCS, former catcher Todd Pratt was subsequently dealt to Philadelphia, where he wore and signed this Phillies home jersey during the 2004 season. Complete description available on our website.
Well-traveled backup catcher Todd Pratt wore and autographed this Phillies home jersey during the 2004 season, the club's first at Citizens Bank Park. This white knit button-down garment features a red pinstripe pattern and "Phillies" embroidered in red cursive to a white plate across the chest. In red-on-white twill, "3" is sewn to the back and left sleeve and "PRATT" is arched atop the back number. An MLB silhouette logo adorns the base of the neck and, on the upper portion of the back "3," Pratt's black Sharpie pennings shows ("8-9") strength. On the right sleeve, an "INAUGURAL SEASON" patch celebrates the new ballpark, while an additional patch with a "POPE" ribbon likeness and a shamrock reading "TUG" respectively pay tribute to franchise staples Paul Owens and Tug McGraw, both of whom passed away between the 2003 and 2004 seasons. On the left front tail a "Majestic" label is sewn alongside a size "50" tag. Within the left seam, a fabric content tag bears a "0062" gamer code. Original and unaltered, the jersey exhibits signs of outstanding game wear, with minimal puckering about the twill components and pilling on the upper back. Accompanying is an LOA from Ed Dolan, as well as an auction LOA from James Spence Authentications.
