New York Yankees 1923 Signed Baseball

Keep your eye on the ball! On February 23, Heritage Auctions is offering a rare team baseball signed by the 1923 champions, the New York Yankees. A quick survey of the following chart should be helpful to those who need to be reminded how the Major League Baseball clubs have performed. World Series History shows that the New York Yankees have won by far the greatest number of championships of any team, twenty-seven, and that the very first of these was in the year 1923.

At this writing, bidding, including the buyer's premium, is above $7,000. So far, that seems like a bargain. The sale is being held, appropriately, in New York.
