“The Chairman of the board” wore and autographed this New York Yankees home jersey at the 1989 Old Timers game in the Bronx. Ford has signed the front in blue marker (“7” strength) and the back in black marker (“8” strength) and inscribed “#16” on both. The all-original garment has proper “Wilson” size “46” tagging.

The white knit button-down garment features a blue pinstripe pattern, “NY” sewn to the left breast in blue satin twill and “16” sewn to the back in like fashion. Within the cotton-lined collar, a swatch has a chain stitched identifiers reading “Ford 89 1.” On the tapered left front tail, a “Wilson” label is accompanied by a size “46” flap tag. Evidence of wear includes faint stains about the left front and perspiration-induced soiling within the collar.
