    2001 Bernie Williams World Series Game Worn Jersey. Though this Fall Classic would conclude in the most heart-crushing fashion for New York, one cannot help but predict that those Yankees jerseys worn in the weeks following the tragic events of September 11 will one day be among the most prized in the collecting hobby for their intense historical relevance. The beloved center fielder sported this road grey knit at the Diamondback's home Chase Field during one of the most dramatic World Series in the contest's history, and very likely for some portion of the regular season that preceded. The standard "New York" on the chest and number "51" on verso are joined by a wide array of design elements uncommon for the Yanks' understated fashion sense. An American flag at rear collar and black armband encircling the left sleeve honor those lost in the recent terrorist attacks, while the left and right sleeves sport the "2001 World Series" and American League centennial patches respectively. The tail holds the "Russell Athletic Authentic Collection" label with "100% Polyester [size] 48" flap tag below. Wear is appropriately light but definite. Authenticating stickering and paperwork from Steiner Sports, the official marketing outlet for Yankees game used materials. LOA from Steiner Sports. LOA from Lou Lampson.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
