On August 4th, 2010, Alex Rodriguez joined a group of prestigious men as the New York Yankees third baseman became the seventh and youngest member ever to hit 600 home runs. The excellent power hitter was able to do this during the 2010 MLB season while racking up 30 home runs, 125 RBI’s, and 74 runs scored, all while batting .270 for the year. The Yankees made a playoff run in 2010 as well but fell short in the AL Championship.

It was the bottom of the first inning on a sunny, New York summer day when A-Rod got up to bat against Shaun Marcum of the Toronto Blue Jays. With Derek Jeter already on base and two outs already on the board, A-Rod came out ready to swing big. After going down to a 2-0 count, Rodriguez took a nice swing at an 85 mph pitch and smashed the ball over center field into the stands for his 600th career home run. After the beautiful swing, Rodriguez rounded the bases and met Jeter at home plate for a memorable hug and was met by his teammates on the field as the dugout cleared to congratulate him on his feat.

Offered here is the complete uniform that Alex Rodriguez wore during the game on August 4th, 2010. On the jersey, the classic Yankees logo is sewn on the left chest in navy twill. Sewn-in above the Yankees logo is a memorial patch for George Steinbrenner that reads “GMS”, “THE BOSS”, and George M. Steinbrenner III.” The jersey has “13” is sewn in on the back in Yankees blue for Rodriguez’s number. The one-of-a-kind jersey also features a memorial patch for “The Voice of Yankee Stadium”, Bob Sheppard and is sewn in on the left sleeve above a black memorial armband for Ralph Houk, who passed away on July 21st, 2010. The MLB logo is sewn in the rear collar area. The Majestic jock tag has a “2010” tag to denote the year of use along with “Taper” “48”, & “+1” Body” for the sizing of the jersey. Below the Yankees logo on the left chest is inscribed with “Game Worn #13 600 Home Run 8-4-2010” along with Rodriguez’s signature in black permanent marker. The jersey shows its game use with moderate dirt staining on the front and back.

The pants from this uniform have an identical design to match the jersey. The MLB Authentic/Majestic pants tag and “13 Rodriguez 35-40 34 C ‘10” jock tag are sewn in the rear of the inside waistband. The pants are stained from sliding in dirt during the game and include a pack of sunflower seeds in one of the rear pockets.

Both the jersey (Certification #: FJ095975) and pants (Certification #: FJ191097) come with an MLB Authenticated hologram and individual full LOAs from Alex Rodriguez himself. Photomatch Resolution has also photomatched this uniform to the exact date, August 4th, 2010 (Certification #: RA062019). An amazing uniform with its condition and significance as A-Rod joined a prestigious group of men while wearing it.
