Description2005 Bernie Williams Game Worn & Signed New York Yankees Helmet - Photo Matched to 10-7 vs. Angels with Team Letter. Baseball is a game of change. Players flip from team to team with regularity in today's game. The New York Yankees most recent dynasty was created because of the foundation it was built around. One of the men who helped restore the luster of the proud franchise was Bernie Williams. The four-time Gold Glove recipient also appeared in five All-Star contests during his 16-year career in pinstripes.
This "American Baseball Company size 7" helmet was used by Williams during the 2005 season. Resolution Photomatching has matched the helmet to Game 3 of the Yankees-Angels American League Division Series at Yankee Stadium. Williams finished the game 2-for-4 with an RBI and run scored. Various scratches and contact marks are visible on the dark blue shell suggesting extended use. "51" is stickered on both sides. The inside has a size sticker, two Steiner holograms and ABC label. Williams signed just above the ear hole in silver paint pen. LOA from Resolution Photomatching. LOA from Yankees-Steiner. COA from Steiner (autograph). Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
Guide Value or Estimate: $2,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
