It’s finally time to give away the 1937 Cincinnati Tigers “throwback” jersey that was issued to Reds pitcher Travis Wood for the Negro Leagues Tribute Game on July 9 at Miller Park.

Here’s the deal…

To enter to win the jersey, you must send me a photo ( that captures your love and enthusiasm for Better Off Red.

Photos will be judged by a panel of Better Off Red “experts” who will collectively determine first place (jersey), second place (choice of a Joey Votto signed baseball or a Brandon Phillips signed baseball) and third place (either a Votto signed ball or a  Phillips signed ball) winners.

I’ll accept photos beginning now through the end of the game on Sunday, August 14.  Winners (and their photos) will be posted on Better Off Red on Monday, August 15
