    1948-49 Casey Stengel "The Sporting News" Presentational Award Certificates Lot of 2 from the Casey Stengel Collection. The Ol' Perfesser is dubbed the "No. 1 Minor League Manager in 1948" by the top sporting periodical in the nation, which praises him for his Oakland Oaks' Championship season, and notes that this victory earned him the job "in the majors as the pilot of the New York Yankees." The second certificate names Casey the "No. 1 Major League Manager in 1949," again praising him for overcoming adversity and "intelligent employment of knowledge gained from years of experience as a player and pilot." Each certificate is hand inked in gorgeous calligraphy, and measures 14x17" in size. The later certificate has a very minor corner bend, but when framed each will present as NRMT. A very special offering that marks the beginning of an incredible New York Yankees World Championship "five-peat."
