Description

    1999 New York Yankees World Series Championship Trophy. "A pop in to left...the New York Yankees...World Champions. Team of the decade. Most successful franchise of the century." That was Bob Costas' call as the Yanks closed out a four-game annihilation of the National League Champion Atlanta Braves, becoming the first team to win the Fall Classic with consecutive sweeps since the 1938-39 Bronx editions. This shimmering trophy was the spoils of war for one team staffer, who was fortunate enough to be on the payroll for the twenty-fifth World Championship season. The design should be familiar to any collector, but it still never fails to send up a chill. Pennants rising up to a foot tall and representing all Major League teams surround crown and baseball figurals at center of a circular base, upon which the press pins for both the Yankees and the Braves are applied. A golden band cinches the base, engraved with the celebratory phrase, "World Series Champions, New York Yankees, 1999." Unless you know how to hit, pitch or otherwise cater to the strict demands of The Boss, this auction may be the only way one of these will ever sit upon your mantle.
