Yankee Greats Book from Topps Looks at 100 New York Yankees Baseball Cards

Love them or loath them, there's no denying the impact the New York Yankees have had on the hobby. From Babe Ruth to Mickey Mantle to Derek Jeter, the franchise has a storied history led by some of the most popular names ever with collectors.

Topps and Abrams are joining up to publish Yankee Greats Image, a new book that includes looks at 100 classic New York Yankees baseball cards (at least from one company's perspective).

10 Most Collectible New York Yankees of All-Time

The book is written by Bob Woods who helped launch the Topps Magazine more than 20 years ago. Scheduled for a June 1 release, the Yankee Greats is available on Amazon Image for less than $15 (more than $5 off the suggested retail price).

Yankee Greats also comes with four exclusive baseball cards. Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Reggie Jackson and Paul O'Neill each have new cards done with the 2012 Topps Baseball design.

Topps and Abrams recently published a retrospective book on Garbage Pail Kids, which also came with exclusive cards.

Ryan's collecting origins began with winter bike rides to the corner store, tossing a couple of quarters onto the counter and peddling home with a couple packs of O-Pee-Chee hockey in his pocket. Today, he continues to build sets, go after inserts with cool technologies, chase Montreal Expos and finish off his John Jaha master collection.
