  • Could you help identify this NYY jersey?

    Hi all, so my father bought a NYY baseball jersey when he was about 20 (now 51) when he visited the US, Ive been trying to find out some more info about it but i have come up short. I dont want to sell it or anything but im curious to know if it has any value to it or if it is even original.


    Thanks!

      If I had to guess, and it’s just a guess, I would believe it’s counterfeit. The company name on tag seems off also and never heard of that company. Ask him if he bought it on the street from a vendor or at a store. Off a vendor on the street? Probably fake.

        FWIW “36” doesn’t seem to have been a “hot” number back in the late 1980s...unless someone saw bringing in Richard Dotson would be a big merch moving deal!

          Back in the 80s, teams could designate whatever company it wanted to have their jerseys made. It was not until recently that one specific company created jerseys for all major league teams. With that said, I too have never heard of the USA Sports Bureau. It could be that the company has since closed. Moreover, the #36 as SteveJRogers mentioned was not a hot number back in the 80s, unless it was a retro jersey using Johnny Mize's number as a Yankee.....although Mize's career was at an end when he played for them.
