Over the weekend, the Cardinals and Goldschmidt officially agreed to a five-year, $130 million extension. The extension not only keeps the All-Star first baseman in St. Louis through the 2024 season, but it also makes Goldschmidt the highest-paid player in franchise history.
For a Cardinals fan base that hasn’t seen its team make the playoffs since 2015, this is about as good of news as you can hear right before the season starts.
When Goldschmidt was traded to St. Louis back in December, Cardinals fans might have been hesitant to add his jersey to your collection since he was headed for free agency after the season. But now that we know he’ll be a Cardinal for the foreseeable future, it’s time to catch up on all the new Goldy apparel that dropped earlier this offseason.
If you need a recap on all the Goldschmidt Cardinals merch that’s dropped, we have you covered.
How about the Goldy Arch?
The nickname definitely has a ring to it!
Here’s the rundown of the new Goldschmidt Cardinals uniform.
Details: For the die-hard Goldschmidt fans out there, Fanatics also offers a Jersey Assurance Program, which means that any jersey purchased within the last 90 days can be exchanged for free if the player switches teams during that time span.
Goldschmidt, a six-time All-Star, is bringing his power bat to a lineup that hit 205 home runs last season, but missed out on the final Wild Card spot by 2.5 games. Last season, Goldschmidt hit .290/.389/.533 with 33 home runs and 35 doubles in 158 games. Over the past six seasons, the 31-year-old has averaged 30 home runs, 100 RBIs, and 36 doubles per year.
So, yeah, the Cardinals are definitely getting an upgrade, and this year’s team should be a whole lot of fun to watch.
