2003 Andy Pettitte New York Yankees Game-Used World Series Road Jersey (Steiner)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,292.50
New York Yankees road jersey worn by pitcher Andy Pettitte in the 2003 World Series. Graded a perfect A10 by MEARS. This jersey originates directly from Yankees-Steiner Collectibles, the official collectibles company of the New York Yankees, which exclusively markets all authentic game-used Yankees jerseys, and is accompanied by an LOA from the company attesting to its game-used status. The gray knit jersey is lettered "New York" across the front and features the number "46" on the reverse. All letters and numerals have been appliquéd in navy on white tackle twill. A New York Yankees "100th Anniversary" patch appears on the left sleeve, while a 2003 World Series patch adorns the opposite sleeve. Located on the left front tail are a "Russell Athletic" label, an adjacent "2003" year tag, a "50" size tag, and a tag that reads "+2 inch Extra Length." A Major League Baseball patch appears on the rear collar. The jersey is completely original, with no alterations, and displays minimal wear throughout. Although this jersey was worn by Pettitte in the 2003 World Series, he never made an appearance in a road game. Pettitte started Games 2 and 6 at Yankee Stadium against the Florida Marlins. He pitched well in both contests, winning Game 2 by a score of 6-1 and losing a 2-0 pitcher's duel against Josh Beckett in Game 6. For the season, Pettitte tied his career high in wins with twenty-one while posting an ERA of 4.02. Pettitte is considered one of the top left-handed pitchers in the game today and his .641 lifetime winning percentage ranks ninth among active pitchers. Graded A10 by MEARS (5 point base grade, plus 5 points for provenance). LOA from Dave Bushing & Troy Kinunen/MEARS and also from Yankees-Steiner Collectibles attesting to its authenticity and game-used provenance. This is the only Andy Pettitte jersey listed in the MEARS census. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,292.50
