The attractive jacket was worn by Rijo between innings or while he was warming up. There is a Rawlings size 46 tag in the collar. The jacket is signed in the front, just under the Reds' logo. Rijo signed and inscribed the jacket "Jose Rijo M.V.P. 1990 W.S." The jacket shows nice wear, especially on the metallic button snaps. The jacket serves as a fitting remembrance of both Rijo and the Cincinnati Reds when both were reaching a peak.
