Washington Nationals young star Juan Soto had an outstanding rookie campaign as he finished the season with a .292 average with 22 home runs and 70 RBI, finishing second in the National League Rookie of the Year voting. While wearing this Washington Nationals’ red alternate jersey, Soto hit three home runs, including his first career hit and home run. This jersey has been photo matched by Sports Investors Authentication to the June 2, 3, 8, 18, 23, July 1, 7, 14, 15, 28, 29, August 4 (2), September 1, 2, 15 and 16 games. In those games, Soto combined to go 21-for-66 with three home runs, 12 RBI, 12 runs and nine walks. Soto’s first Major League hit, which was also his first career home run, has been officially credited to the suspended May 15th game that was eventually completed on June 18th. That home run was off of Yankees’ pitcher Chad Green during the completed game on June 18th. Although the first time he appeared in an MLB game was actually May 20th (and he hit a HR in that game) in a quirk of bsaeball statistics, the first home run and first hit that appears in his statistics including baseball reference is the suspended May 15th game, making this a very unique and historically significant jersey.

This multi-game Washington Nationals red alternate Majestic Flex Base size 46 button-down jersey was worn by Soto during the 2018 regular season in the above-referenced games. In 2019 Soto had hit three multi-home run games, the most in MLB history by a teenager. This jersey has the Washington “W” sewn on in white and navy tackle twill on the upper left chest. Soto’s number “22” is sewn on the center right chest in white and navy tackle twill. White and navy piping are linked together and run around the collar and down both sides of the buttons and along the sleeve ends. The left sleeve has the Nationals’ logo patch, which is above the Majestic logo that is embroidered in red, while the right sleeve has the “ALL*STAR GAME WASHINGTON, DC 2018” patch.

 The back of the jersey has the vinyl MLB logo patch above the piping, with “SOTO” and his number “22” sewn on in white and navy tackle twill. The Majestic Flex Base size 46 tag is screen-printed on the bottom front left tail. This jersey displays solid wear consistent from being worn and washed several times with puckering on the letters and numbers and loose threads. This jersey comes fully authenticated with a LOA from Sports Investors Authentication (190817G2), who have photo matched this jersey to the above-referenced games. Additionally, there is an MLB Authenticated hologram (JD193696).
