When was the last time the Cardinals won the World Series?

At the time that the original question was asked (prior to the 2011 WS), the St. Louis Cardinals had last won the World Series in 2006 against the Detroit Tigers. They won in 5 games, winning games 1, 3, 4, and 5. The MVP of the Series was David Eckstein of St. Louis. However, the Cardinals again won the World Series in 2011 defeating the Texas Rangers in 7 games, winning games 1, 3, 6, and 7. It was their 11th WS title. The Series was noted for the dramatic game 6, in which the Rangers were one strike away from winning the WS in both the bottom of the 9th and 10th innings. Both times, the Cardinals erased 2-run deficits to tie the score, ultimately winning the game 10-9 in the bottom of the 11th on a walk-off home run by David Freese, who was also the Series MVP. In addition, Albert Pujols of the Cardinals hit 3 home runs in game 3, matching a WS record held by Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson of the NY Yankees.

How can you find an older Detroit Tigers jersey to customize?

Except for the manufacturer and the MLB logo at the top for the neck (only on Authentics) the Tigers home jersey has been the same since they switched to the Doubleknit fabrics. The Road jerseys are a bit tougher to find. Majestic is making a reproduction of the 84 road jersey, but the font is too big, and the sleeve striping is off. To be honest, If you find an original (mad in that timeframe) you will be very, very lucky. Here's a link to a store that does an exceptional job on customizing Tigers jerseys
