    Calling All Daryl Strawberry Experts

    This strip tag looks bogus to me. Does not match exemplars I have seen. Any thoughts?

    I'm with you. I believe the year should be in the ID. Also there were 2 legit embroidery fonts on '85 Mets gamers. This tries very hard to imitate one of them, but something about it looks off.

    I was wrong...I checked my files, and the sequence of uniform #, size, set is correct, yet it still doesn't look quite right.

    The sequence isn’t in question. The font is bad....no good IMO.

    Here’s the Strawberry....and three other ‘85 Mets gamers from common players. I chose common players to eliminate the need for financial gain via fraud.

    Did anyone contact heritage? They are a reputable auction house and should do the right thing and pull it.

    The Rawlings tag has other needle holes in the upper left corner which is a concern and look at the long zigzag stitching under the strip tag. The others are straight stitched.

    I agree that the stitching/needle holes on the Rawlings tag is a red flag. However I don’t think the strip tag “long zigzag” stitching is unusual as I’ve seen this on 85 homes. The other 85 examples shown are all roads, and I think the straight stitching is correct for roads from this year.

    The numbers on the back of the jersey look very off as well.
