The 2018 New York Yankees accomplished something no team prior has ever done before, setting a new major league baseball record for home runs in a single season with 267. The previous MLB record for home runs by a Team in a single season is the 1997 Seattle Mariners who hit 264 Home Runs. The Yankees started the season off well ahead of the pace, but then fell behind shortly after Gary Sanchez and Aaron Judge were each shelved on the DL for over a month. When September came around, the team looked like it had a chance to break the record. After hitting four Home Runs in the September 28th contest against the Red Sox to tie the record, the stage was set for the Saturday game, giving the Yankees two games to eclipse the mark. In the fourth inning, the NY Yankees rookie phenom Gleyber Torres entered the batters box and homered to right (385 feet) breaking the single season record for home runs by a team with the teams 265th.

Touted as the franchises #1 prospect and a top Three prospect in baseball heading into the 2018 Season, Gleyber Torres has been nothing short of expectations. Torres was the front runner for rookie of the Year heading into the All Star break after winning AL Rookie of the Month honors in May. In 2018, he tallied a total of 24 Home Runs in only 123 games as a 21 year old.

This jersey was worn by Gleyber Torres for the entire Sept 28-30 Series against Boston and has been ink marked to confirm it is infact the jersey worn to break the All time Franchise Home Run Record. Earlier this year, Gleyber's first career Grand slam Jersey garnered a sum of $37,056.00 in a Steiner Weekly Premium Auction. This jersey being worn for his final Home Run of his rookie campaign, and being the franchise Home Run record breaking Home Run jersey should disparage the first career grand slam jersey in comparison. The jersey has been authenticated by Steiner Sports and comes direct from the NY Yankees/Steiner partnership. The jersey is accompanied by a Steiner Tamper Proof Hologram and a letter of authentication.
