New York Yankees Collecting and Fan Guide

New York Yankees

Franchise Founded: 1901
Championships: 27
Team Collectibility Rating: 10.0 (Exceptional)


The New York Yankees are one of the most revered franchises in baseball history. With a legacy dating back to 1901, the team's postseason success is rivaled by only the NHL's Montreal Canadiens for most championships by a franchise in professional sports. It is this winning tradition, combined with a rich history of Hall of Fame players, that makes the New York Yankees one of the most collectable sports teams in the hobby.

The number of New York Yankees players that have been inducted into the Hall of Fame reads like an All-Star dream team. With names like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Whitey Ford and Yogi Berra, it's easy to understand the influence the franchise has in the sports card and collectibles market.

After the advent of free agency, the Yankees have not been afraid to spend money on the league's top available players. The team's front office has been masterful at adding key players to its roster in an attempt to maintain their winning postseason tradition. Players like Reggie Jackson, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens and Alex Rodriguez are just of the few high profile names the team has signed to exorbitant contracts.

However, the franchise has also been successful in identifying top prospects who they have groomed into established stars. Among the most successful of the Yankees' home grown talent are Don Mattingly and Derek Jeter. The collectibility of these players was unrivaled during their prime. Other players whose impact on the team spanned decades since their arrival in the league are pitchers Andy Pettitte and Mariano Rivera. Their battery-mate Jorge Posada, along with Derek Jeter, formed what was known by the fans and media as "The Core Four."
