Description2007 Derek Jeter Game Worn & Signed New York Yankees Jersey with Rizzuto - Photo Matched to 9 Games! The 2006 campaign was one of the Captain's finest statistically, and his .322 batting average with 102 runs, 206 hits, and thirty-nine doubles resulted in another All-Star berth and MVP consideration at the conclusion of the season.
Presented is a home white pinstriped jersey worn for nine games (8/2, 8/3, 8/4, 8/5, 8/14, 8/15, 8/16, 8/17/, and 8/18) during the summer of 2007 in which Jeter totaled seven hits, seven runs, and five walks. The accompanying paperwork from Jon Robinson's Resolution Photomatching provides an ironclad assurance of authenticity.
The jersey exhibits evidence of wear, most evident in the softness of the "Majestic Athletic Authentic Collection [size] 48" tagging at lower left front tail. The logo "NY" appears in navy tackle twill over the heart, with Jeter's retired number "2" similarly applied to verso. Black mourning band and number "10" on left sleeve remembers Corey Lidle and Phil Rizzuto who passed away in October of 2006 and August of 2007, respectively.
A fine blue sharpie signature with the "Game Used 2007" inscription under the "NY" rates 9/10, and affixed MLB authenticating hologram validates both the additional date of game use (8/19) and the 9/23 date of the autograph session. An absolutely perfect specimen of one of baseball's newest Hall of Famers. Full LOA from Resolution Photomatching. COA form Yankees-Steiner Collectibles (20195). LOA from Heritage Auctions.
Guide Value or Estimate: $10,000 - 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.
