Colorado Rockies jersey question

So I was looking at game used jerseys online and someone is selling a 1997 Larry Walker, autograph, game used jersey. Was looking at the photos and on the buttons it says Colorado Rockies...was wondering if MLB teams still do this on the buttons?

A quick google search shows the Rockies didn't have front numbers in 1997. It won't let me link to the picture, but look at the pic of him holding the MVP trophy. I am 99% sure they didn't add the front numbers until they switched to the pinstriped road unis in 2000 or 2001. Also, since the Rockies started using front numbers they have used a thinner, slightly larger version of MLB block for the front numbers. This jersey may have been purchased from the team, but the seller had it customized with Walker's name. Knowing that, I wouldn't be surprised if Walker's signature was forged, either.

have you ever been on Jersey Central? It's a site for jersey collectors of all sports. You might want to give it a look if you are a serious collector like me.

As far as the price, it's a little too rich for my blood but that has a lot to do with me not being a Rox fan. It's a pretty decent price for that one. Are you gonna buy it?

This is the rest of the jersey
