Fernando Tatis’ 1st Major League jersey sells for $ 212,000


The white home jersey worn by Fernando Tatis on his MLB debut and four days later when he hit his first home run sold for $ 212,000 at the Fanatics Holiday auction on Monday night. .

The white button-down jersey was autographed and inscribed by the young San Diego Padres star, with ratings confirming it as the one he wore on March 28, 2019 when he played in his first game and won his first hit in the major league.

He was also wearing it when he completed his first tour four days later. The inscriptions under his signature on the back read: “G / U MLB Debut 1st Hit 3/28/19” and “G / U 1st Career HR 4/1/19”.

It was the most expensive jersey sold so far on Fanatics’ new auction platform, but it was not the most expensive item in the auction. One of 320 Rookie Fleer Michael Jordan cards from 1986-1987 rated PSA 10 won the honor at $ 300,000.

The auction featured a variety of memorabilia, rewards, autographs, and collectible cards used in the game.

The Super Bowl XLVI ring presented to New York Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham was the third best-selling item at $ 80,000. The jersey Manningham wore in that victory over the New England Patriots, when he landed a key take on the sidelines, was also offered at auction and the signed and inscribed white shirt sold for $ 13,450. .
