2005 Randy Johnson New York Yankees Game-Used Road Jersey (Steiner)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,880.00
New York Yankees road jersey worn by future Hall of Fame pitcher Randy Johnson in 2005. Graded a perfect A10 by MEARS. This jersey originates directly from Yankees-Steiner Collectibles, the official collectibles company of the New York Yankees, which exclusively markets all authentic game-used Yankees jerseys, and is accompanied by an LOA from the company attesting to its game-used status.The gray knit jersey is lettered "New York" across the front and features the number "41" on the reverse. All letters and numerals have been appliquéd in navy on white tackle twill. Located on the left front tail are a "Majestic Athletic" label, an adjacent "2005" year tag, and a flag tag bearing the size, "50." A Major League Baseball patch appears on the rear collar. The jersey is completely original, with no alterations, and displays moderate wear throughout. Standing at a height of six-feet, ten inches, and armed with a fastball clocked at upwards of 98 miles per hour, Randy Johnson is certainly one of the most imposing figures ever to take the mound. Today, Johnson's current Hall of Fame resume includes 280 wins, 4,544 strikeouts (third all-time), one pitching Triple Crown (2002), and five Cy Young Awards. Johnson's first year in pinstripes was 2005 and "The Big Unit" made a favorable impression on Yankee fans by leading the team in wins (17) and strikeouts (211). Graded A10 by MEARS (5 point base grade, plus 5 points for provenance). LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and also from Yankees-Steiner Collectibles attesting to its authenticity and game-used provenance. This is one of only two Randy Johnson jerseys listed in the MEARS census and the highest-graded example by far (the other, a 1998 Mariners road jersey, is graded A4.5). Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,880.00
