Alex Rodriguez became a baseball immortal on August 4th, 2010 when the New York Yankees third baseman slugged the 600th home run of his legendary career. Rodriguez reached the 600 home run milestone in the midst of another solid year, finishing it with 30 longballs, 125 RBI and 74 runs scored, while batting .270. It was Rodriguez’s 17th home run of the year that elevated the former number one overall draft pick to the ultra-exclusive 600 Home Run Club. Rodriguez and the Yankees faced off against Toronto Blue Jays at Yankee Stadium as Rodriguez sat on number 599. Rodriguez came to bat against Shaun Marcum in the first inning, with Derek Jeter already on base, primed and ready to swing. On the third pitch of the at-bat, Rodriguez jumped on a pitch down the middle with his trademark right-handed swing, depositing the ball over the centerfield wall. Rodriguez and Jeter shared a hug at home plate after scoring, and the Yankee dugout emptied onto the field to properly congratulate the newly-minted member of the 600 Home Run Club.

This historic batting helmet is a size 7 ¼, with the Yankees iconic interlocking “NY” logo applied to the front of the helmet in white. Rodriguez’s number “13” is applied to the brim and the back of the helmet in white, while an MLB logo decal is also applied to the back of the helmet. The ear flap is present over the left ear and all the interior padding is intact. Rodriguez has signed the left side of this helmet in silver marker, inscribing “Game Worn #13 600 Home Run 8-4-2010” in addition to his signature. This batting helmet comes with an MLB Authenticated hologram (FJ191034) and a LOA signed by Alex Rodriguez.
