Wade Boggs has proven to be one of baseball's most consistent hitters. Boggs posted seven consecutive 200-plus hit seasons from 1983-1989. In 14 of his 15 Major League seasons, he hit over .300 and captured the A.L. Batting Champion crown a total of six times. Boggs didn't want to become known as a one-dimensional offensive player, so he took it upon himself to improve his defensive skills. His extra hard work paid off when he earned 11 consecutive All-Star Game starts, setting a record for American League third basemen (1986-1996). He also led the A.L. third basemen in fielding percentage in 1993 (.970) and in 1995 (.981). Although his fielding was superb, Boggs will always be remembered for his hitting. Wade Boggs connected on his 3000 hit with a home run against Cleveland on August 7, 1999. Wade Boggs won a World Championship with the NY Yankees in 1996. Wade Boggs has hand signed this Yankees jersey with the inscription "HOF 05." A Steiner Sports certificate of authenticity is included.
