Team-signed New York Yankees memorabilia tops Steiner Sports’ new offerings by Chris Olds

Want yet another way to quantify just how dedicated and passionate New York Yankees fans can be?

Look no further than Steiner Sports’ Yankees World Series collection, which includes several limited edition team-signed items from this year’s championship team.

Some might say they’re pricey — and they are — but without someone to buy them Steiner couldn’t sell them. There’s undoubtedly interest in those powerful pinstripes so much so that a $20 baseball above once signed by a team (how much does ink cost these days?) will run $3,499.

Here’s a rundown of what can be found in Steiner’s Yankees section:

— Team-signed jersey, $4,499 (limited edition of 50)

— Team-signed celebration 16×20 photo, $3,499 (limited edition of 50)

— Team-signed stadium overview 16×20 photo, $3,499 (limited edition of 27)

— Team-signed World Series logo baseball, $3,499 (limited edition of 260)

— Team-signed World Series logo bat, $4,499 (limited edition of 50)

— Team-signed Yankees batting helmet, $4,499 (limited edition of 12)

For this writer’s money (well, if I had that much), the best two team-signed items of the bunch aesthetically speaking would probably be the batting helmet and likely the bat.

Team-signed items are getting tougher and tougher to compile in recent years just because of the money that’s involved with athletes signing items that will command premium rates on the secondary market. (They’ll want more to sign them and there has to be a realistic price range for the items as the number of fans who might buy dwindles as the prices increase.)

Fortunately for Yankees fans, Steiner’s extensive deals with several members of the Bronx Bombers make that an easier possibility. All of Steiner’s team-signed items will include at least 24 autographs, including Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mariano Rivera, Mark Teixeira, Johnny Damon, Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia among others.
