  • Item Description

    Bid now on this Clayton Kershaw Civil Rights Game-Used Jersey Autographed By Sandy Koufax and Kershaw, EK316650. This home jersey was worn by Kershaw in the Civil Rights Game honoring Jackie Robinson at Dodger Stadium April 15th, 2015 and is Autographed by Sandy Koufax and Clayton Kershaw. MLB Authenticated - Hologram EK316650. Clayton Kershaw, left-handed starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, is a three time Cy Young Award winner as well as 2014 National League MVP. He was the seventh overall draft pick in 2006 and was the youngest player in the MLB during his debut in 2008.

    Sandy Koufax, former Los Angeles Dodger, is considered one of the greatest left-handed pitchers of all time. Sandy was voted most admired athlete of the century. Sandy threw out the first pitch at the 2015 All-Star game and was voted by the MLB fans as one of the four greatest living baseball players.

    There is a strong comparison between Sandy and Clayton because of their success throwing left handed. The strong relationship is apparent as Sandy presented Clayton with his Cy Young award in New York last year.

    The number on this Autographed jersey, 42, is in honor of Dodger great Jackie Robinson and Sandy walked Mrs. Robinson to the mound at this year?s game.

    Kershaw's Challenge began in 2011 with a little girl named Hope, a very evident need in her life, and the realization of a platform to do great things. Today, Hope is 13 years old. She was born in Lusaka, Zambia, and has battled with HIV her entire life. Ellen Kershaw met Hope when she was 9 years old. At the time, Hope was a vulnerable orphan, sick and malnourished, and was accustomed to surviving on the streets. The two instantly connected. Ellen and Clayton committed that summer to make life better for Hope by sponsoring her through a ministry organization--providing food, education and medication.

    In December of 2010, Clayton traveled to Zambia for the first time. After years of seeing pictures, Clayton was in disbelief at the depth of poverty. He met Hope. Though the funds through sponsorship were making a difference, Hope was still lacking one critical need: a safe place to call home. This need--this little girl--was the beginning of Kershaw's Challenge.

    Coming home, Clayton and Ellen had the vision of building a home for Hope and children just like her. Clayton came up with the idea of "Strikeout to Serve" during the 2011 baseball season—donating per strikeout to make the home a reality. In 2012, Kershaw's Challenge expanded to support organizations in Los Angeles and Dallas in addition Zambia.

    In December of 2012, the first 8 children--including Hope--moved into the Arise Home. For the first time, they had beds to sleep in, a loving family of brothers and sisters, nurturing house mothers to tuck them in at night, full bellies everyday, and a private school education. 2015 is an exciting new season for Kershaw's Challenge. We will continue our work in Los Angeles, Dallas and Zambia. For the first time, we will expand our efforts into the Dominican Republic.

    Kershaw's Challenge is committed to transforming the lives of children in America, Africa and the Dominican Republic. Our goal is to partner with organizations that are committed to this as well. We aim to empower others to join our cause in unique ways - creating their own challenge or joining Clayton in his challenge. Since 2011, Kershaw's Challenge has given away over 1.8 million dollars to underprivileged children like Hope. Together with our supporters and beneficiaries, we long to make life better for children worldwide.

What is a Reserve Price auction?

In a Reserve Price Auction, the seller has set a Reserve Price, which is a price below which the listing will not sell. The Reserve Price is higher than the Opening Value. A reserve price allows the seller to start the auction with an opening value below the reserve price to initiate bidder interest and determine the fair market value of an item. If the seller as set a Reserve Price you will see either a "Reserve Price NOT Met" or "Reserve Price Met" message on the listing page depending on whether the current bid is below, or at or above, the reserve.

Reserve Price NOT Met- The current amount of the highest bid is below the reserve price and the item will not sell at auction close.

Reserve Price Met - The current amount of the highest bid is equal to, or greater than, the reserve price and the item will be sold.

If the highest bid at the auction close does not meet the seller's Reserve Price, the seller is not required to sell the item unless the seller chooses to do so. In this case, the seller will have a period of 48 hours after the auction close in which to contact the highest bidder whose offer was below the reserve price. Bidders who are contacted under these circumstances, however, are under no obligation to purchase the item.

Why does a seller use a Reserve Price?

In a Reserve Price auction, the seller starts the auction at a value below the lowest price at which s/he is willing to sell (the Reserve Price) to capture the bidder interest. This way, the bidders are not forced to bid at fair market value from the start of the auction. Also, many sellers prefer Reserve Price auctions when they are not sure of the market value of an item, and want to find an audience by enticing multiple bidders' interest.

What is an Open auction?

In an Open Auction, buyers bid until the auction ends. The item is then sold to the highest bidder at the end of the auction period. There is no reserve price in an Open auction. The seller must sell the item to the highest bidder. Bidding can start as low as the Opening Value (minimum price or starting amount) of the auction.

Once the auction closes, email notification providing contact information is sent to the buyer and seller automatically so that arrangements for payment and shipment of the item can be determined.

What is a Dutch Auction?

A Dutch Auction occurs automatically on Major League Baseball Auctions when a seller has multiple, identical items offered for sale. The seller specifies the minimum price (the Opening Value) and the number of items for sale. Bidders can then bid at or above the minimum price for the quantity of items they wish to purchase. At the close of the auction, all winning bidders purchase the items at the same price, which is the lowest successful Bid.

How are winning bids determined in multi-item listings?

In some auctions, a number of identical items are offered for sale at the same time. When the listing closes, the highest Bidders win the available inventory. Bids are sorted in order with priority given to price, the quantity bid for, and then finally to time a bid was placed. The time of a bid is determined by MLB.com based on its records. If bids are tied for price, the Buyer who has bid in the greater quantity wins. If there are two bids at the same price for the same quantity, the early bid wins.

What is a Fixed Price auction?

Fixed Price Sale listings or "Buy it Now" auctions have a fixed price set by the seller. Buyers simply choose to buy the item at that price. Fixed Price listings will remain active until all items have been sold or the close date and time set by the seller has been reached.

What is Auto Bid Extend?

The Auto Bid Extend feature ensures that bidders will always have a chance to challenge bids placed in the final seconds of an auction. When indicated on a listing page, if a bid is placed during the last 5 minutes of an auction, the auction will automatically extend for an additional 5 minutes from the time of the latest bid. The auction will close once all bidding activity has stopped for a period of 5 minutes.
