2003 Mike Mussina New York Yankees Game-Used Home Jersey (Steiner)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $822.50
New York Yankees home jersey worn by five-time All-Star pitcher Mike "Moose" Mussina during the club's 2003 pennant-winning season. 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 white-knit pinstripe jersey features the club's "NY" logo on the front and the number "35" on the reverse. All letters and numerals have been appliquéd in navy tackle twill. A New York Yankees "100th Anniversary" patch adorns the left sleeve. Located on the left front tail are a "Russell Athletic" label, an adjacent "2003" year tag, a "48" size tag, and a flag tag reading "1 inch Extra Body Length." A Major League Baseball patch appears on the rear collar. The jersey is completely original, with no alterations, and displays moderate wear throughout. Since his debut in 1991 Mike Mussina has distinguished himself as one of the top pitchers in the game. His 239 career wins ranks fifty-fourth all-time and fourth among active pitchers. Mussina joined the Yankees in 2001 and has been the team's most dependable hurler to date, leading the club in ERA in three of his six seasons. Mussina enjoyed another stellar season in 2003, winning seventeen games, against only eight losses, and recording a 3.40 ERA. That performance helped lead the Yankees to their fifth pennant in eight years. Mussina also pitched well in the World Series, winning his only start in Game 3 by a score of 6-1, but the Yankees lost to the Marlins in a closely contested seven-game series. 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 Mike Mussina jersey listed in the MEARS census. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $822.50
