1999 Yankees Team Signed World Series Game Used Jersey Derek Jeter Beckett COA
Jeff Nelson came over to the New York Yankees from the Seattle Mariners in the same trade that brought Tino Martinez as well. Nelson was a strong right handed presence in the Yankees bullpen that produced four World Series titles in five seasons and was the perfect bridge to Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera.
Offered here is the jersey Nelson wore during the Historic 1999 World Series that comes directly from the personal collection of Jeff Nelson. Nelson was flawless in the postseason, not allowing any earned runs as the Yankees cruised to another World Series title. This Russell Athletic size 50 button-down road Yankees jersey has “NEW YORK” in sewn on in block letters across the chest in navy and white tackle twill. The Russell tag and a white tag with “NELSON 97” in faded black print are sewn on the front left tail, along with “100% POLYESTER” and “4” EXTRA LENGTH” flags. The sleeves have navy/white/navy stripes on the ends, with the right sleeve having the 1999 World Series logo patch and the right sleeve having a small “5” sewn on in black tackle twill in memory of the late Yankee great and Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio. Nelson’s number “43” is sewn on the back in navy and white tackle twill.
