1991 Gene Larkin World Series Jersey Worn for the Game-Winning Hit
Switch-hitting first baseman/outfielder Gene Larkin played his entire seven-year major league baseball career with the Minnesota Twins. Larkin wore this jersey in the 1991 World Series when, as a pinch hitter in the 10th inning of Game 7, he delivered a bases-loaded single to drive in Dan Gladden and give the Twins the 1991 World Championship. The white pinstriped button-front jersey has Twins across the front and Larkin's number 9 on both front and back in red-on-navy tackle twill. There is a Rawlings size 46 label in the collar, with "2 inch extra length" and "91 2" labels sewn next to it. A "TC" patch appears on the left sleeve, and there is a 1991 World Series patch on the right sleeve. The jersey also comes with a newspaper article entitled "Role of a Lifetime" describing Larkin's pinch hit, and including a photograph of him as he got the game-winning hit. Wow.
