Update (July 31): It sold for $160,644.05 when bidding ended on Sunday.
Aaron Judge owns The Big Apple this summer — and the hobby, too — and now somebody can own a truly historic piece of his memorabilia.
It’s the jersey he wore for his MLB debut and his first career home run, and it’s a key piece in Steiner Auctions‘ Mid-summer Classic auction running for the next 30 days.
Judge’s pinstriped gem is from Aug. 13, 2016, when he homered after fellow debuting rookie Tyler Austin in a 8-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. The shot came in his first at-bat and before he dirtied his uniform on the basepaths later in the game.
Bidding opens at $10,000 — and that’s nothing compared to the cash commanded when Steiner auctioned his first career grand slam jersey. That one sold for $45,578.40 earlier this month.
