This lot features a game used catchers mask used in the 2004 World Series by Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek. Nicknamed "Tek", is a retired American baseball catcher. After being traded as a minor league prospect by the Seattle Mariners, Varitek played his entire major league career for the Boston Red Sox, for whom he now works as a special assistant. A three-time All-Star and Gold Glove Award winner at catcher, as well as a Silver Slugger Award winner, Varitek was part of both the 2004 World Series and 2007 World Series Championship teams, and was viewed widely as one of the team's leaders. In December 2004 he was named the captain of the Red Sox, only their fourth captain since 1923. He was a switch-hitter. Varitek is one of only three players, along with pitcher Ed Vosberg and outfielder Michael Conforto,to have played in the Little League World Series, College World Series, and Major League World Series. He additionally participated in Olympic Baseball and the World Baseball Classic. Varitek caught an MLB-record four no-hitters, a record which was later tied by Carlos Ruiz. This game worn mask is a must have for any Red Sox fan. MLB HOLO # MT 00535003
