This vintage Starter jacket for the New York Yankees is in their navy blue and white colors. The New York Yankees are one of Major League Baseball’s oldest franchises established in 1901. The NYY are also one of MLB’s most successful franchises with 18 division titles, 40 AL pennants, and 27 World Series championships, all of which are MLB records. 44 Yankees players and 11 Yankees managers have been inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, and Yogi Berra. Some of the recent decade stars include Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, El Duke, Mariano Rivera, Andy Pettitte, manager Joe Torre, Roger Clemens, Alex Rodriguez, Jackie Robinson, “El Duque” Orlando Hernandez and Roger Maris.
The Yankees have one of the largest rivalries in sports with the Boston Red Sox in the American League East division – and the Red Sox have had to watch the Yanks win 27 World Series Championships over the past century. It was said that the Boston Red Sox were cursed (Curse of The Bambino) when they sold Babe Ruth to the NY Yankees in the year 1919. After the Red Sox traded The Babe to the Yankees, the Red Sox didn’t win again for almost 100 years.
The Yankees hold many of baseball’s greatest distinctions & records including:
winning a leading 27 World Series in 40 appearances
playing in the World Series against every National League pennant winner except the Houston Astros and the Colorado Rockies, a feat that no other team is even close to matching
Through 2014, the Yankees have an all-time regular season winning percentage of .567 (a 10,031–7,648 record), the best of any team in baseball
This vintage satin bomber jacket represents all of the history that is the New York Yankees with their signature NY logo and old school throwback logo embroidered on the arm and true Yankee fans should not hesitate to pick up this classic piece of sports memorabilia.
