81365: 1996 New York Yankees World Championship Trophy.
1996 New York Yankees World Championship Trophy. The longest World Championship drought in Yankees history since Babe Ruth helped bring the first to the Bronx in 1923 ended this season after seventeen joyless Octobers made this eighteenth one the sweetest of all. Presented to a front office worker in the Yankees organization, this striking foot-tall trophy marked the start of one of the greatest dynasties in club history, the first of four the club would claim in a five season stretch. The flags of every Major League team ring baseball and crown figurals, and adapted press pins for the Yanks and defeated National League Champion Atlanta Braves. An engraved band that belts the base reads, "1996 New York Yankees, World Series Champions." A thing of beauty for any true Yankee devotee.
