New York Yankees 2009 World Series replica home jersey (#27) signed in blue Sharpie on the front by twenty-nine team members of the 2009 World Champion New York Yankees. This jersey was signed under the auspices of both Steiner Sports and Major League Baseball, and displays corresponding hologram labels from each party. It is also accompanied by a Steiner Sports COA. As noted on the MLB.com website, this jersey was signed on November 5, 2009, and at that time only 50 such jerseys were autographed by the team (the limitation number "25/50" is written in blue Sharpie just above the Majestic label on the left front tail.) The twenty-nine signatures on this jersey are those of Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mariano Rivera, Mark Teixeira, C. C. Sabathia, A. J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte, Hideki Matsui, Jorge Posada, Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher, Melky Cabrera, Brett Gardner, Phil Hughes, David Robertson, Phil Coke, Damaso Marte, Joba Chamberlain, Ramiro Pena, Eric Hinske, Jerry Hairston Jr., Joe Girardi (Mgr.), Brian Cashman (GM), Mike Harkey, Kevin Long, Mick Kelleher, Rob Thomson, Dave Eiland, and Tony Pena. All of the signatures are boldly scripted and grade "9" or "10." These jerseys were the premier New York Yankees team-signed display piece offered by Steiner Sports following the 2009 World Series, and, despite what appeared to be a very high original issue price ($5,000), they sold out almost immediately. Given the extremely low number of team-signed jerseys produced, the high demand, and the fact that probably no more will ever be made available to collectors (especially since a number of the players are no longer with the club), this is certain to be regarded by collectors as both a modern classic and one of the most desirable and elusive team-signed items issued by Steiner in commemoration of the Yankees 2009 World Championship. In Gem Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
