Mike Schmidt Phillies Coaches Worn Batting Practice Jersey
Lot #224

This red Phillies batting practice jersey by Majestic was worn by Hall of Fame third baseman Michael Jack Schmidt while he was coaching with the Phillies. Schmidt is generally thought of as the best third baseman to ever play the game as evidenced by his receiving more votes in the 1999 All-Century team than any other third baseman in history.

Mike is a three time National League MVP and played in 12 All Star games. He was one of the best homerun hitters of his generation leading the league 8 times. His 548 career homeruns were attained before the "steriod" era when 50 homerun seasons and 500 homerun careers were extremely rare. To go along with his incredible power, Mike was a gold glove third baseman winning the award 10 times. In 1999, he ranked 28th on "The Sporting News" list of the 100 greatest baseball players ever. He was the highest ranking third baseman and the highest ranking player of anyone whose career began after 1967.

This red Phillies batting practice jersey is a size 48. It is autographed in Mike's hand on the back number. The jersey will be accompanied by a receipt and an auction voucher from Phillies Charities, Inc. give to our consignor.
