Established at the plate and primed to re-write the record books at the tender age of 24, Ken Griffey, Jr. made a serious bid to shatter the single-season home run mark, clubbing 40 round-trippers before a players’ strike ended the season on August 11. This Seattle Mariners home jersey was worn and signed by “Junior” during that abbreviated campaign. The jersey features twill identifiers, proper “Russell Athletic” tagging and shows light wear. On the right front, Griffey has signed in black marker ("8-9" strength) and inscribed "game used 94." Full photo LOAs from Dave Miedema (for jersey authenticity) and JSA (for autograph authenticity).

On the right front, Griffey has signed in black marker (“8-9” strength) and inscribed “game used 94.”Blue piping lines the collar and button path, while the tapered left front tail is home to a “Russell Athletic” size “46” label, a strip tag denoting “1994,” a fabric content tag and a “2” Extra Length” flap tag.
