This chest protector was used behind home-plate for two of MLB's most historical games, a World Series clincher and during the end of a World Series drought. It was first worn on Oct 6th, 2010 when Roy Halladay threw only the 2nd No Hitter in MLB history when he faced just 28 batters walking 1 and striking out 9 while throwing 104 pitches. This no hitter came 54 years after Don Larsen's famous perfect game in the 1956 World Series. It was then used on Sept 19th, 2011 when Mariano Rivera recorded 602nd save of his career by pitching a perfect 1-2-3 ninth inning as the Yankees beat the Twins at Yankee Stadium. It was Rivera's 43rd save of the season and put him past closer Trevor Hoffman for the most save in baseball history. It was then worn on Oct 30th, 2013 when the Boston Red Sox clinched their 3rd World Series in 10 years against the St Louis Cardinals by winning Game 6 at Fenway Park by a score of 6-1. Lastly it was worn on Oct 28th, 2016 during Game 3 of the 2016 World Series where the Indians won 1-0 but ended up losing the series in seven to the Chicago Cubs who ended a 108 year World Series win drought.  MLB Holograms - FJ254064, JB961638, EK863377, JB946831
