DescriptionLee MacPhail Signed Vintage Photograph.
Fresh out of college in 1941 Lee MacPhail followed in his father's footsteps, becoming business manager of a minor league team in Pennsylvania, then general manager in Toronto, and then joining his father's organization, the New York Yankees, being named the general manager of the Yanks' Double-A club in Kansas City in 1946 before being promoted to director of player personnel, where he stuck until 1958 (winning nine pennants and seven World Series). The Baltimore Orioles took notice of his talents and stole him away from New York, hiring him as president and general manager where he orchestrated the O's acquisition of Frank Robinson.
MacPhail continued on through various executive roles within the Office of the Commissioner, the American League, and the MLB Player Relations Committee. In 1998 the elder MacPhail was joined in Cooperstown by the younger, becoming the first father and son duo to earn the honor.

The reverse of the image features the typed caption "Mike Burke greets father & son: Larry MacPhail & Lee MacPhail GM of Yanks" and a Louis Requena stamp.

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
