It is rare enough to own a Home Run gamer from an MLB star, so how about a pair from two sluggers that went back-to-back in the same game! On August 1, 2012, the Boston Red Sox hosted the Detroit Tigers at Fenway Park. The Tigers broke the game open in the 5th inning when Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder hit back-to-back homers to give them a 6-1 lead. Incidentally, both homers were monster shots, Cabrera's blast clearing the billboards atop the Green Monster and landing in the parking lot. The Tigers won that game, 7-5, and would go on to take the American League pennant before falling to the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.

Cabrera captured AL MVP honors in 2012 and broke a 45-year drought by becoming the first Triple Crown winner since Yaz in 1967. He batted .330 with 44 HR and 129 RBI. Fielder hit .313 with 30 HR and 108 RBI in 2012 to earn himself a Silver Slugger. Miggy is bound for Cooperstown one day. Prince, unfortunately, had to hang 'em up early due to injury. His power, like that of his dad Cecil, will never be forgotten.

Each player signed and inscribed their jersey in perfect 9-10/10 looking silver felt tip pen on the back numbers. Both jerseys are certified by MLB Authentic, can be photo-matched, and were signed through DC Sports in Detroit who conducts exclusive signings with Cabrera and other Tigers.
