1923 Yankee Stadium Terra Cotta Figural Piece....
These terra cotta pieces are clearly visible in vintage photography, and Yankee Stadium blueprints (modern copies of which are always available on eBay) present this design above the text "Terra Cotta Panels on Balconies." The decorative design consists of two baseballs in the center of a scrolled pattern backed by a golden oval that was meant to convey a sense of glowing light. It's a stunning display piece that conveys better than any stadium chair or featureless brick the majesty of this Golden Age monument to our National Pastime. Fifty years of weathering is apparent upon its surface, but the weighty piece (eighty-two pounds) remains solid and undamaged, ready for a place of distinct honor in even the finest of private collections. Letter of provenance from superintendent of mid-1970's stadium renovation crew.
