See a Picture of this Item 413 Fine 1989 Mike Schmidt Philadelphia Phillies road jersey with direct team provenance. Although it seemed like a routine road series for Mike Schmidt and the Philadelphia Phillies, the San Francisco trip at the end of May in 1989 turned out to be the final series of Schmidt's storied career. Plagued by poor hitting and two very costly errors in San Francisco, Mike Schmidt abruptly announced his retirement on May 28, 1989. Having already secured entry to the Hall of Fame with his outstanding career statistics, Schmidt refused to accept a lower standard of play given everything he had already accomplished. His character as a player, and as a person, led him to walk away from the game in a professional manner befitting his place in baseball history. Offered is a complete road grey knit uniform worn by Schmidt during that final season of 1989. The jersey retains its original "P" on the front along with #20. Back has "Schmidt" nameplate above #20.

The letter is signed by Schmidt at the bottom and also includes its original Phillies logo auction lot tag. One of the finest Mike Schmidt game used uniforms to have been offered at auction with note to impeccable provenance. Includes LOAs from Hunt Auctions (jersey), JSA (autograph), Phila. Phillies (signed by Mike Schmidt), and original Phillies auction lot tag: EX-EX/MT ($5,000-$7,500) $8,000.00

Interested in using the team as a promotional vehicle, Page would have the players ride to games on bicycles through various towns wearing fire hats and the like. Despite the drudgery of such promotions on the players, the Giants evolved into the finest African American team of the period, winning the 1896 championship series against the Cuban Giants. The offered mounted 7 1/2""x9 1/2"" studio image of the Page Fence Giants pictures Grant Johnson, manager A.S. Parsons, George Taylor, Joe Miller, Pete Burns, William Binga, and John Patterson. Pictured in the top row second from the left is Charlie Grant, who was one of the first true star players in early African American baseball and was highly touted by Major League officials. In 1901, John McGraw, as manager of the Baltimore Orioles, attempted to pass Grant off as a Native American Indian called ""Chief Tokahoma"". He had light skin and straight hair, giving credence to McGraw's plan. Grant had been working as a bellboy at a hotel where spring training took place, and was discovered by McGraw while playing for the hotel baseball team. Alerted by African American fans, Chicago White Sox owner Charles Comiskey exposed McGraw's plan and Grant was prevented from playing in the Major Leagues. Photo itself remains in outstanding original condition with nearly pristine clarity and contrast. Mount remains equally clean with some negligible edge wear, and is stamped, ""C.A. Buss Photographer Jefferson, Wis."" on the reverse. Period ink notation also appears on the back, citing ""Sherman Barton, Normal, ILL."" One of the most significant African American related baseball images extant with the offered exemplar easily ranking as the highest condition grade specimen of the few copies known: NM ($5,000-$7,500) $9,500.00
