    2016 Aaron Judge Game Worn New York Yankees Rookie Jersey--Photo Matched to Fifth Game of Career! The last man to cause such a stir with double-nines on his back was The Great One, and if Aaron Judge continues down the path he's thus far blazed, those digits will one day find their own immortality in Yankee Stadium's Monument Park. Presented is one of the earliest Judge gamers that exists, photo matched to just his fifth appearance in the Majors, a full eight months before he'd even begin his 2017 Rookie of the Year campaign.

    Excitement about this towering slugger was soaring when Judge donned these pinstripes to face the Toronto Blue Jays in the Bronx on August 17, 2016. He had gone yard in each of his first two games, and while he didn't homer in this particular contest, his two base hits (with an RBI) would find him batting .389 by the end of the seven-to-four loss.

    Go to Getty Images and search for "Aaron Judge" and the date and you'll find a couple dozen shots that will provide the most comprehensive photo matching you could possibly desire--clearly this massive new Yankee was the star attraction for fans and photographers alike. In every intersection between the pinstripes and the "NY" over the heart, the number "99" on verso, and the memorial Yogi Berra patch on left sleeve, the match is exact. If that's not enough for you, Major League Baseball itself affirms the attribution as well.

    Lower left front tail of the "Flex Base" garment is tagged "Majestic Authentic Collection Size 52," affixed with a Steiner Sports serialized authentication sticker. Below is a Yankees inventory coding label affixed with a Major League Baseball serialized authentication sticker. Game wear is evident. Consider what a 1995 Derek Jeter jersey is worth today and ask yourself how you'll feel twenty years from now if Judge joins The Captain in Cooperstown and you didn't bid. MLB Authentic JB814253. Steiner Sports 242258. LOA from Heritage Auctions. Multiple Getty Photo matches.
