Los Angeles Angels superstar Mike Trout, the consensus best player in baseball, wore this red Angels jersey for a staggering 25 games early in the 2014 MLB season. Trout was named American League MVP for the first time in 2014, hitting .287 with 36 longballs and an AL-best 111 RBI to earn all 30 first place votes. The New Jersey native added 115 runs, 39 doubles, nine triples, and 16 stolen bases to his incredible statistical output. Trout wore this red button-down jersey on April 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 16th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 25th, 26th, 27th, and 30th, as well as May 3rd, 6th, 9th, 10th, 12th, 14th, and 15th. Trout went 26-98, with five homers, 15 RBI, 15 runs scored, and 14 walks during this 25-game stretch.

Several of these games stand out, largely due to Trout’s now-expected feats of incredible baseball ability. On April 16th, Trout scored the game-tying run in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Oakland A’s, knotting the score at 4-4 and allowing the Angels to claim a vital early season win in extras thanks to Chris Ianetta’s walk off blast in the bottom of the 12th. Trout went 2-5 with a double, RBI, and run scored in this game, a 5-4 Angels victory. On April 26th, Trout collected the 68th homer of his career, taking Vidal Nuno of the New York Yankees deep in the first inning of Los Angeles’ eventual 4-3 loss. Trout finished this pitched contest 2-3 with a RBI, two walks, and the first inning round-tripper. Trout went yard again on May 9th at the Rogers Centre against the Blue Jays, sending a Dustin McGowan offering over the fence to lead off the third inning and push the score to 2-1 Los Angeles. Thanks to Trout’s longball, the Angels eked out a 4-3 victory over their northern rivals.

Trout’s 25th and final game in this jersey came on May 15th, during a home game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Trout came to the plate in the bottom of the ninth inning, runners on the corners, against Rays All-Star closer Brad Boxberger with the Angels trailing the Rays 5-3. On the third pitch of the at-bat, Trout pulled a down-and-in off-speed pitch from Boxberger over the Angels bullpen in left field for the first walk off home run of his career.

Trout’s teammates mobbed him at home plate after his walk off dinger, ripping off the second third, and fourth buttons of this jersey, necessitating its removal from play after the May 15th game. This jersey has “ANGELS” sewn across the chest in red, navy, white, and gray tackle twill. Trout’s number “27” is sewn on the chest and back in red, navy, white, and gray tackle twill, with “TROUT” sewn across the back shoulders red, navy, and white tackle twill. A circular Angels logo and a white Majestic logo are sewn on the left sleeve, while an Angels “A” logo patch is sewn on the right sleeve. A MLB logo patch is sewn on the back outside collar. White-gray-white piping accents the collar and sleeve openings. A Majestic size “48” tag is applied to the front left tail. Trout has signed the “2” digit on the back of the jersey in black marker, inscribing “14 G/U AL MVP” and “5-5-15 Walk-Off” in addition to his signature. This jersey shows heavy wear and is original with no alterations. A LOA from JSA (Y236297) accompanies Trout’s signature, while a MLB Authenticated hologram (HZ 100007) indicates that this jersey was used on May 15th and taken out of play following the game. Sports Investors have provided a LOA and photo matched this jersey to the aforementioned 25 games (180525A1). Additionally, an Anderson Authentics LOA signed by Trout himself accompanies this jersey.
