Watch Video of Kirk Gibson's amazing Pinch Hit (courtesy of MLB.com)

It is our privilege to present the most historically significant game worn baseball jersey of the modern era. Kirk Gibson’s 1988 World Series Los Angeles Dodgers home jersey, worn to hit his epic game winning home run in Game One of the series, features the classic Dodgers script logo on front with his number “23” in red on the left breast and in blue on back. His last name “Gibson” appears on the back in blue lettering. On the right sleeve is the embroidered 1988 World Series patch. Inside the collar is the Rawlings manufacturer’s tag showing size "46" with an adjacent strip tag embroidered "88 1 W.S.". A flag tag below the Rawlings tag notes “1 inch extra length”. Gibson has inscribed the front in blue sharpie “My WS Jersey Worn 10/15/88 to Hit GW HR Kirk Gibson 23". The shirt exhibits appropriately light wear with the notable trait of a band of pine tar residue appearing across the right shoulder. Similar residue appears on the left shoulder as well to a slightly lesser degree. Gibson had a habit of resting the handle of the bat on his shoulders in between pitches. These pine tar stains can be seen in photos and video of Gibson wearing this jersey during the course of his epic feat during Game One of the 1988 World Series. The location, type and amount of pine tar exhibited by the bat used by Gibson to hit the game winning home run (offered as Lot 1198) further validates these markings. This jersey remains completely original and unaltered, just as it was when Gibson wore it on that unforgettable October evening that turned the baseball world on its head. Includes a signed LOA from Kirk Gibson and an additional LOA from PSA/DNA (auto.)
