Encapsulated under the clear acrylic face of this Fenway
artifact is a section of heavy duty
vinyl canvas that was
once the outer 'skin' of one of the outfield wall pad that
in right field near "The Pesky Pole"
in Fenway Park,
home of the 'Sawx!
This wall pad was retired and authenticated by Major
League Baseball in 2010. Being wall pads serve for many,
many years before being retired/replaced, its a given that
it was in place when Boston won the World Series in 2007
.... and in all likelihood .... was also present when they
FINALLY broke the curse in 2004, too!!
pad 'skin' used to create this unique piece of
Beantown Sports history was authenticated by Major
League Baseball & carries MLB Authenticated Serial
Number FJ-255543 on it.
This number can be accessed
on MLB Authenticated's
website, assuring all that this
wall pad .... the one used to
create the plaque offered for sale here .... IS 100%
Other then being wiped down with a damp cloth to remove
any surface dirt, this wall pad segment is exactly as it was
the day it was retired from Fenway Park.
Any/all imperfections you see to this wall pad segment
was 'earned' from years of "game use"/service in
"America's Favorite Ballpark"!
