Legendary Auctions Presents The Jim Leyritz Collection

One of the best clutch performers in postseason history, Jim “The King” Leyritz became a perennial Yankee favorite and national sensation with his fabled playoff and World Series home runs. Now Legendary Auctions has the unique privilege to offer Leyritz’s finest milestone mementos for the very first time—and all directly from the King himself. Featured are Jim Leyritz’s:

*1995 A.L.D.S. Game 2 Walk-Off Home Run Jersey and Bat
*1996 World Series Game 4 Home Run Bat and Ball – The Historic Home Run That Sparked the Yankee Championship and Dynasty
*1996 New York Yankees Championship Ring
*1999 World Series Home Run Bat and Ball – Last Home Run of the 20th Century

As described in detail on our website—click here to view the entire Jim Leyritz Collection—every item boasts the following iron-clad provenance:

1) Meticulous documentation by Leyritz immediately following each milestone event
2) Safeguarded possession by Leyritz’s personal attorney for the majority of time afterward
3) Recent acquisition first-hand from Leyritz
4) Leyritz’s signed letter of authenticity attesting to the origins and preservation

Although a batch of Jim Leyritz memorabilia hit the market a few years ago via his ex-wife, Jim assured us that the game-used bats and balls presented here were not displayed in his home—and thus never accessed by his ex-wife or ever made available to the public. Furthermore, he insisted we utilize third-party authenticators in order to inextricably link each milestone item to its respective event and utilize them we did.

Throughout the process, Legendary sought to do everything in our power (and wallet) to ensure the most definitive third-party certification. For example, PSA Authenticator John Taube exhaustively researched the 1996 World Series Game 4 Home Run bat through frame-by-frame analysis of game footage, resulting in a quartet of irrefutable photo matches.

As previously stated, that extremely significant bat—as well as every other bat, ball and jersey in the Jim Leyritz Collection—was appropriately marked by Leyritz right after the event, and then housed under lock and key, until now.

We invite you to revel with us once more in those breathtaking Yankee highlight reels and take home your own piece of the Leyritz legacy.
