Take a look at lot 45: "Jason Varitek 2004 Game Used Jersey with Number Change." Why would the Sox issue a previously worn jersey to guy who has worn the same number since 2000? Oddly enough, the number of the back - before the change - was number 34, which David Ortiz has worn since joining the Sox in 2003.

Not sure if this is the reason, but Varitek wears a size 50 and Ortiz a size 52. Is it possible that they started making the Ortiz jersey and then changed it to the Varitek? Does this happen, being so close in numbers?
