The 1923 Wolrd Series was one of epic proportions when speaking of baseball and American history in general. It was the first year of play in the “Old Yankee Stadium”, the first year the Yankees no longer had to share a home with their old “landlords” the New York Giants. In 1922 Babe Ruth was plagued with injuries and missed a lot of play, 1923 he was back and proved his new home field was “the House That Ruth Built”. The Bombers ended up winning the series in six games, and ironically their biggest difficulty from the opposition was Casey Stengel. Ornate museum quality display piece with gold frame measuring 41” x 51”. This piece is decorated with autographed cuts from 29 members of each team (mostly Yankees) as well as portrait shots of each next to their respective autographs. At center is what appears to be an original cover of the 1923 Worlds Championship Series Program which features John McGraw, and Miller Huggins. Yankee autographs include; Jacob Ruppert-Owner of Yankees which is on contract paper, Ed Barrow who was very much responsible for building the Yankees first dynasty as their business manager who had control of the roster which is typically the field manager’s responsibility), Miller Huggins (on cut inscribed “Baseball Dinner 1929”), a wonderful “Babe Ruth”, George Pipgras, “Sincerely” Joe Dugan, Bob Shawkey, Elmer Smith, Carl W.
