Featured here is a lovely 1978 World Champion New York Yankees trophy presented to a team dignitary. The "Bronx Zoo" era of Yankees baseball proved that team chemistry does not always matter as long as there's enough talent and passion in the dugout. With a clubhouse full of fiery personalities, headlined by Manager Billy Martin and slugger Reggie Jackson, the Yankees were somehow able to overcome the Red Sox and, more impressively, themselves to claim a second straight World Series crown. In fact, New York downed the Dodgers by the same 4-games-to-2 margin in each Fall Classic. The '78 Yanks stood 14 games behind Boston in July before storming back to take the AL East, culminating with that famous Bucky "F---ing" Dent home run in the deciding one-game playoff.

The smaller-format trophy(12" tall and 5.5 lbs.) of the same size and design issued to players features pennants of all 26 MLB teams at that time surrounding a gold crown above a silver baseball. Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees World Series press pins stand in front. The black base contains a gold band around the perimeter calling out the Yanks as World Champs with the recipient's name ("Mike Fountain"). There is light to moderate wear to the metal and wood base and all elements are completely intact without issue, which is a rarity in itself. A wonderful example of a coveted World Series trophy from a memorable, tumultuous Yankees squad.
