I likely would have passed on this jersey, as I'm trying to collect all the Wallach cards, not all the jerseys, but for one thing. I'm 90% sure this is the same jersey Wallach was wearing the first time I met him at a Spring Training game. My concern is with the #4 patch. At Spring Training that wasn't there, as the Dodgers didn't decide to wear the patch until March 30. So would they have given Wallach a whole new jersey, or just add the patch to his existing jersey? I can't imagine that as a third base coach, Wallach went through very many jersey's in 2011, so if they only added a patch, then this is probably the same jersey.
I've seen the Dodgers play at Salt River twice in the last three years. The second time Tim didn't make the trip but his son Matt was with the Dodgers, and as I recently posted, I randomly ended up with that jersey a year later as well. I don't think I'm going to be able to see the Dodgers at Salt River this year but I'm still trying to make it work if for no other reason than to see if I can keep this jersey streak going.
At some point I plan to frame this jersey, but right now it's #2 or #3 on the depth chart for Wallach jersey's I want to frame, so another year or so hanging in the dark seems likely. It came with a certificate of authenticity too, but as those don't impress me very much I didn't bother to scan it. But some random ebay seller signed his name to a piece of paper alleging its the real deal.
