** THE ACTUAL GAME WORN JERSEY FROM THE CONTROVERSIAL PLAY IN GAME 2 OF THE NLDS **

Fantastic road grey jersey game worn by RUBEN TEJADA during Games 1 and 2 of the 2015 National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers.  “New York” and number “11” on front, “Tejada” and “11” on back.  Special “2015 Postseason” patch on right sleeve and customary Mets patch on left sleeve.  The jersey was authenticated by Major League Baseball with hologram number HZ 836392.  Accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity from the NY Mets.

The Mets only used one set of jerseys for both games in LA – October 9, 2015 and October 10, 2015.

It’s been the most talked about play of the playoffs so far – Chase Utley took out Ruben Tejada at second base, breaking his leg and propelling the Dodgers to a Game 2 win. Was it a dirty play? Was it just hard baseball? Should he have been called out?  It might be discussed (and shown) for years. Countless photos of Ruben wearing this very jersey appear online and were splashed on the front and back pages of newspapers nationwide.

The fans and Mets rallied around Ruben and won a decisive Game 3 with the rallying cry “#WinForRuben”.

The jersey still has light dirt staining on back which is clearly shown in video from the game after Tejada fell to the ground, in pain, after the slide by Utley.

Hologram number HZ836392 was located in the MLB Authentication Database under GAME-USED JERSEY.
