2009 New York Yankees World Champions Limited-Edition Team-Signed Ball (#44/250)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,231
Official 2009 World Series ball signed in blue ink (grading "9" or "10") by twenty-nine members of the 2009 World Champion New York Yankees. This ball was signed under the auspices of both Steiner Sports and Major League Baseball, and displays corresponding hologram labels from each party. It is also accompanied by a Steiner Sports COA. As noted on the MLB.com website, this ball was signed on November 5, 2009, as part of a special limited edition, and only 250 such balls were autographed by the team. This particular ball bears the limitation number "44/250" written in blue ink on the sweet spot. The twenty-nine signatures on this ball are those of Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mariano Rivera, Mark Teixeira, C. C. Sabathia, A. J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte, Hideki Matsui, Jorge Posada, Robinson Cano, Nick Swisher, Melky Cabrera, Brett Gardner, Phil Hughes, David Robertson, Phil Coke, Damaso Marte, Joba Chamberlain, Ramiro Pena, Eric Hinske, Jerry Hairston Jr., Joe Girardi (Mgr.), Brian Cashman (GM), Mike Harkey, Kevin Long, Mick Kelleher, Rob Thomson, Dave Eiland, and Tony Pena. Because these balls could only be purchased through Steiner Sports (at a very high original issued price of $3,495), and they were so limited in number, this is an exceptionally ideal signed memento commemorating the Yankees record twenty-seventh World Championship. In Gem Mint condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $3,231
