2006 Gary Sheffield New York Yankees Game-Used Home Jersey (Steiner)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,292.50
New York Yankees home jersey worn by nine-time All-Star outfielder Gary Sheffield in 2006. 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 white-knit pinstripe jersey features the club's "NY" logo on the front and the number "11" on the reverse. All letters and numerals have been appliquéd in navy tackle twill. Located on the left front tail are a "Majestic Athletic" label, an adjacent "2006" 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 light to moderate wear throughout. Gary Sheffield is one of greatest sluggers of the modern era and his 455 career home run total ranks thirty-first on the all-time list and ninth among active players. Sheffield joined the Yankees in 2004 and quickly proved his worth as a "Bronx Bomber." The perennial All-Star outfielder batted .290 with 36 home runs and 121 RBI in 2004 and followed that up with similar numbers in 2005 (.291, 34 home runs, and 123 RBI). Unfortunately, a wrist injury caused him to miss most of the 2006 season. Despite being limited to just thirty-nine games, Sheffield still managed to hit 6 home runs with 25 RBI while posting a .298 average. 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. All authentic game-used modern-era Yankee jerseys originate directly from Steiner. This is one of only two Gary Sheffield jerseys listed in the MEARS census (the other is a minor league jersey attributed to Sheffield). Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,292.50
