Description

    2008 Yankee Stadium Game Used First Base from Alex Rodriguez Career Home Run #534. The man with the best shot at supplanting Barry Bonds as the Career Home Run King moved into a tie with the great Jimmie Foxx on June 30, 2008 in the Bronx, stepping on this bag as he took his jog around the bases. As with the A-Rod home run bat likewise presenting within this auction, his long ball this date accounted for the Yanks' only scoring in a two to one loss, but the historic importance of this artifact cannot be diminished by this fact. Even without the added relevance of this particular homer, the base carries tremendous collecting appeal, with the side plate announcing "The Final Season" providing an added guarantee of its investment strength. A-Rod's black sharpie signature on the base is massive and flawlessly bold. Authenticating stickers on underside are affixed by Yankees marketing company Steiner Sports (with matching paperwork), and by Major League Baseball. LOA from Steiner Sports. LOA from PSA/DNA (autograph). LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph). Guide Value or Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500.
