Beyond The Dugout is
proud to partner with Starting Lineup Client BRETT GARDNER in the sale of the Mizuno Baseball
Spikes he was wearing when he crossed home plate in the seventh inning of the September 21, 2008 game between his
New York Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles…scoring the FINAL RUN in the history of YANKEE STADIUM.
These spikes are from Brett’s personal collection and are being offered for the first time to serious baseball memorabilia collectors worldwide.
Each spike will be carefully signed by Brett, using a silver Sharpie permanent marker,
with the inscription “Worn to score the Final Run at Yankee Stadium – 09/21/08” (or a similar inscription
desired by the purchaser). Each spike will carry a unique, tamper-proof, serial-numbered “Beyond A Doubt Authentic”
label; the full-color Certificate of Authenticity accompanying the spikes will carry the matching labels for each
spike and will be signed by Brett. The certificate will also contain pictures of the spikes, Brett signing
each spike, and Brett scoring the final run.
These spikes are true pieces of baseball history, and would be a grand centerpiece
of any serious collector’s baseball memorabilia collection.
