Luis Aparicio Collection - 2006 WBC Signed Jersey

When I stumbled across an auction for this Luis Aparicio 2006 World Baseball Classic signed jersey I knew I had to have it.

I'm not sure what the history of this jersey is exactly. It might be something that was sold in team shops during the 06 WBC. I'm not sure why they would have one for Luis unless it was sold in Venezuela. The patches on the sleeves and tags look identical to this Victor Zambrano game used jersey that was sold back in 2007 by Lelands.

While I'll probably never know the full history, I'll just enjoy it as a unique item for our Luis Aparicio collection. I'd like to get it framed and hang it up sometime soon. We'll see I can get my wife to agree with that.
