I also read in another thread Clemens removes his jocktags. is that a sure way indicator that it's game worn, or are there other attributes that indicate game worn usage? thanks.
I do not know if the Astros have any other Clemens jerseys in inventory. They usually only put out one Clemens jersey at a time and only put out a different one when the old one sells. Mike Acosta is the one to ask.

There are many stories about Clemens removing the tags from his jerseys. I do not know about the other teams but with the Astros I have seen game use on jerseys with and without the tags. I have also seen what appears to be an issued jersey without the tags. In the past I have asked Mike Acosta about this and he stated that Clemens did pitch in jerseys with and without the tags. He did not know the reason for this. On Clemens game used Astros jerseys other than normal use the two things I have noticed they all seem to be size 52 and many have some sort of stain at the end of the sleeve.

Thanks Astros1994. if they're accessible, do you and other members here who own Clemens Astros games think you might be able to show some photos of what you have? and I read awhile back, I think it was on an auction site, that Clemens hand writes "22" on his back collar. is that also a consistent thing with his game jerseys?

they gave me a 15% discount on a Schafer bat, probably because I bought another bat the night before at a full price and, maybe, because I had a long way to go to get to the stadium (from Italy)...the guys there were the nicest you can meet.

Glad to hear of your positive experience. That's cool that you came to MMP all the way from Italy. I hope to visit your country someday, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Any idea if they are having their flashback Friday sale again tomorrow? I plan on going to the game and might get there at opening just in case.

Does anyone know if they are going to have anymore sales this season? Looking to pick up a few "Ski" jerseys and need some help.
Thanks

Do they still have any Biggio stuff? Its a longshot I know but he is from my town originally so i always wanted to add something of his. Best I ever saw was a hit baseball though which isn't my cup of tea.
