This is a brand new with tags, mint condition, Alex Rodriguez signed Yankees jersey with a special inscription from him of "Merry Christmas" in addition to his name. Plus, there are 2 patches, 1 on each sleeve. The first is an All-Star game patch since the game was played at "The house that RUTH built" in its final year plus a patch signifying the final year at the stadium with a picture of it and the years 1923-2008. It's really an incredible item and obviously it's going to keep going up and up in value as the years pass. Things like this are very rare and just think what its going to be worth in 20-30 years. Get a great deal while you still can. Jersey comes with a COA from JSA which is one of the top authentication companies in the world and in addition as always I stand behind everything sold 110%.
