Mid-1980s Eric Davis Cincinnati Reds Batting Practice Jersey
Eric Davis, known as "Eric the Red," obtained his nickname during his nine-season service with the Cincinnati Reds. Davis played for five other teams during his 17-year Major League career, but the center fielder is most remembered for his time in Cincinnati. Davis was a 2-time All-Star, a 3-time Silver Slugger, and a 3-time Gold Glove winner. Davis helped the Reds to a World Series Championship with Cincinnati in 1990 as the Reds swept the Oakland A's in the Series. Davis was diagnosed with cancer during the 1997 season while he was with the Baltimore Orioles, and he missed time fighting against the illness, but he returned to play in the AL Championship Series that year and hit a game-winning home run. Davis had a great combination of speed and power, and he was the first player in Major League history to hit at least 30 home runs and steal at least 50 bases in the same season, which he accomplished in 1996. Davis finished his career with 282 home runs and 349 stolen bases. The jersey was manufactured by Majestic, but it only has a Majestic logo on the right sleeve, and no Majestic tag. All the lettering and numbering is sewn directly onto the jersey. Davis' name is in white block letters on the back, and under his name is his number "44" in white numerals. The jersey exhibits no tags. It is signed on the front by Davis. The jersey is in good condition and yet shows nice use.
