Description

    1977 New York Yankees World Series Championship Large Trophy. It had been the longest World Championship drought suffered in the Bronx since Babe Ruth brought home the very first in 1923, but after fifteen seasons of waiting, the mighty Yanks finally clawed their way back to the top of the sport in 1977. It's a World Series best remembered for Reggie Jackson's home run hat trick in the sixth and clinching contest, a heroic feat that earned the Hall of Fame slugger the nickname of "Mr. October," and this pinstriped edition a high position in the ranking of the franchise's twenty-seven Championships to date.

    Presented is the ultimate symbol of that unforgettable season when the Son of Sam and the surging Yankees were the topics on the lips of every New Yorker. This is the twenty-five inch tall version of the trophy, a format issued only to management and top-level VIP's. The design will be familiar to any collector with an eye toward Championship prizes, twenty-six pennants representing all Major League franchises ringing a central crown and baseball design. Modified press pins representing the pennant winners appear at center. A brass band girds the base, engraved with the text, "World Series Champions, New York Yankees, 1977."

    The trophy presents beautifully, with minor oxidation at the engraved band the only issue meriting mention. A high-quality example of a coveted rarity.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
