Last week I posted about the game worn 2014 Dodgers Post Season home jersey I picked up from MLB.com. I did a little more damage than that. I also bought Wallach's 2014 Dodgers Post Season road jersey. Like the home jersey, this appeared on the MLB.com auction page (I was tipped off to both listings by a reader). And the like the home jersey, I opted not to bid on the jersey, deciding it would be irresponsible and a bit frivoulous to blow money on a jersey I don't really need (I'm a card collector after all).
But after this listing (like the listing for the home jersey) ended without anyone placing a bid, and I had a couple of days to dwell on it, "Want" won out over "Need" and when I contacted MLB I inquired if I could buy both jersey's. They were willing to take my money.
This one was actually a little bit cheaper. I presume that's because it lacks the "Post Season" patch on the sleeve. Which begs two questions, (1) did all the Dodgers road jersey's lack the "Post Season" patch, and (2) was this the jersey Wallach wore during the regular season as well? I can't imagine he went through too many jersey's as bench coach, and if MLB wasn't going to add the patch, why incur the expense of a whole new jersey? In any event, it's a very nice jersey (the cool base thing is no gimmick, it's awesome material) and one I plan to wear on the rare occasion I wear a jersey.
Here are some more pictures of the jersey:
I snooped around a little bit about the missing "Post Season" patch on the sleeve, and feel confident in the information that has been provided to me. It's rare but by no means unheard of. Here's a link to the answer provided to me on the subject.
Also below is a picture of Clayton Kershaw in the road jersey with the patch clearly visible on the sleeve.
