Lot 1164: St. Louis Cardinals Busch Stadium Final Season Away Jersey Taguchi #99
Auction Date:8/28/2006 9:00 PM EST
Spending only his fourth season in the Major Leagues, outfielder So Taguchi, from Japan, overcame a stomach illness late in the 2005 season to help his St. Louis Cardinals earn some play in the post-season. In the National League Championship, he played in every game and in all outfield positions at least once, yet ultimately could not hold back the Houston Astros from winning a place into the World Series. This very clean, grey away jersey commemorates the Cardinals' last season in Busch Stadium with a patch on the left short sleeve, “Busch Stadium, Final Season, 1966 - 2005''. The yellow bat and redbird Cardinal logo displays elegantly across the chest of the button-down front, with Taguchi’s red #99 just below it. Arched along the upper back is “Taguchi” in individual letters, with a large red #99 below it. Tail tagging by Majestic Authentic, size 46, with flag tag “2005''. LOA from the Cardinals.
