    Description

    1953 New York Yankees Five-Time World Champions Presentation Plaque from The Ralph Houk Collection. The New York Yankees have set the benchmark pretty high for baseball excellence. The championship run from 1949-53 is still unparalleled. This impressive plaque (17x23") was presented to Ralph Houk for being one of the men who was a part of each title. For the record, skipper Casey Stengel, four coaches and trainer along with twelve players were a part of the amazing run. Ralph Houk was presented with this keepsake for his inclusion. "Ralph Houk" is engraved on a gold placard on front. The only other similar plaque we could find belonged to Casey Stengel and that realized $6600 eleven years ago. Letter of provenance from Ralph Houk's daughter (copy of original).
