A southpaw side-arm hurler with a deceptive delivery, Florida State product Randy Choate caught the attention of the New York Yankees, for whom he wore this road jersey and cap during the early portion (2001-2003) of his Major League career. The gray knit jersey features twill identifiers and proper “Russell Athletic” tagging. The “New Era” size 7-3/8” cap, meanwhile, has a handwritten notation of Choate’s number “38” on the bill’s underside. Both items show moderate wear. More on our website.
