1999 Orlando El Duque Hernandez Oneonta Yankees Game Used Minor League Jersey


This gray button-up jersey reads "New York" on the front in blue letters with white trim and has "26" on the back in the same colors, and is attributed to Orlando Hernandez, who played minor league ball with the Oneonta Yankees affiliate during the 1999 season. The jersey arrives with a letter from the Oneonta Yankees dated May 20, 1999 and signed by team president Sam Nader. The LOA reads in part, "These uniforms were passed down to me as owner of the Oneonta Yankees, the NY-Penn League Class A affiliate of the parent club, the New York Yankees. All uniforms were previously worn by major league ball-players employed by the New York Yankees." The jersey shows nice game use in the form of scattered stains and light pilling.
