Fall Premier Auction 2013
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
This is a super game-worn road jersey from Ichiro, the legendary figure who captivated baseball fans from two continents in a career that has already amounted to more than 4,000 base hits, one of which occurred in this Aug. 6, 2013 contest against the White Sox in Chicago. Ichiro was wearing this jersey as he provided a pinch-hit single in the top of the ninth inning in a game the Yankees ultimately surrendered to Chicago, 3-2. Ichiro would later score the Yankees' second and final run of the day. The jersey is a handsome grey road, with Majestic tagging on the front tail, plus flag tags of "2013" and "42," plus a "+.25" slv" smaller adjacent tag. The New York Yankees official bar code is affixed below the Majestic tag; holograms from Major League Baseball and Steiner are affixed to the Majestic tag as well. Ichiro has provided a silver Sharpie autograph to his number on the shirt's back, adding his No. 31 inscription. The shirt, showing the game use you might anticipate from a player appearing late in the contest, is in superb condition, appearing essentially as-issued and problem-free.
Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Steiner Sports.
Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
