After an embarrassing sweep by baseball's newest dynasty, the Cincinnati Reds, the American League champion New York Yankees returned to the Fall Classic determined to make amends for the previous year's disappointing finale. From every perspective, pundits and fans alike anticipated nothing less than an amazing World Series Championship in 1977 as classic rivals the New York Yankees and the Los Angeles Dodgers faced off for the ninth time in World Series history. In an intense series, the Yankees churned out dramatic and precise wins to capture the club’s first World Series crown in fifteen years. Game Six was certainly the most memorable in the 1977 World Series thanks to a spectacular performance at the plate by Reggie Jackson. The Yankees' newest "Bomber" became only the second player in history to smash three home runs in a single Series game (Babe Ruth did it in 1926 and 1928). In addition, the five home runs in one Series and four consecutive blasts over a two Series-game period were unprecedented. This World Series trophy was presented to a front office employee of the NY Yankees upon winning the World Series in 1977. 12" tall at the highest flag, the trophy features a gold crown atop an arc centerpiece over a silver baseball, surrounded by 26 gold flags with black lettering on stanchions, one for each Major League team. The two World Series teams' press pins (Yankees and Dodgers) are mounted on small poles on the 7" diameter black base, in front of the silver baseball. The surrounding gold band reads "World Champions New York Yankees 1977." In overall EXMT condition with light wear and some scratching on the base, Balfour manufacturer's sticker underneath base.
