    2007 Alex Rodriguez Game Worn Batting Helmet. A-Rod further dispelled any notion that he may not be the most gifted player in Major League Baseball during the 2007 season, claiming his third MVP Award in five seasons with League-topping figures for home runs (54), runs batted in (156), total bases (376) and runs scored (143). So it's entirely safe to assume that this war-scarred headgear made quite a few journeys around the basepaths in its time.

    We've been assured by Steiner Sports, who handles the marketing of all New York Yankees game used gear, and whose authenticating sticker and letter of authenticity assure the legitimacy of this important keepsake, that this was the only Rodriguez helmet they acquired for the season. We assume it is the one and only helmet he used after donating his 500th home run gamer to the Hall of Fame in early August. Heavy wear gives evidence for this assumption, as the exterior shell, complete with Yankees logo and number "13" decals, is a dirty mess of pine tar and infield clay. The interior padding shows equal use, with the foam rubber lining loosening from friction and sweat. Size "7 1/4" decal joins "Rawlings" and warning label stickers here as well. A picture-perfect specimen for the most serious of modern Yankees collectors. LOA from Steiner Sports. Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - $8,000.
