      • Players not part of a pro teams active roster
      • Players who no longer play for a team because they were cut, retired, suspended, injured, incarcerated or any other reason
      • When a players number, name, or role changes, but they have not switched teams

  • What can I get as a replacement?
    • Fanatics will replace your jersey with any player from the original team you purchased or with the new team jersey of the player who moved, for FREE!
    • For example, when Manny Machado was traded from the Baltimore Orioles to the Los Angeles Dodgers and you qualify for Jersey Assurance you are entitled to receive a replacement jersey of an active player on the Baltimore Orioles or a Manny Machado jersey on the Los Angeles Dodgers. The new jersey will be the exact same type of jersey. If you originally purchased a women’s Majestic Cool Base jersey, the replacement jersey you will receive would also be a women’s Majestic Cool Base jersey.
    • For jersey damage claims, MLB Shop will replace your jersey with the exact same jersey. So if your Manny Machado men’s Majestic Cool Base jersey, size large was damaged, you would be eligible to receive a Manny Machado men’s Majestic Cool Base jersey, size large.

    • Upgrades are allowed. While filing your claim with our Customer Service Athlete let them know you're interested in upgrading. You will pay the difference between the original retail prices of the jerseys
