Incredible offering of the last American and New York Yankee flags to have flow in front of old Yankee Stadium. Little did our consignor know when he came to work that day he would be in a position to rescue two pieces of New York Yankee baseball history. Working with a crew assigned the task of taking down, removing and storing the flagpoles which had stood for years in front of old Yankee Stadium. Everything else was to be demolished and thrown away. He was surprised to find both the huge American and New York Yankee flags still flying. His quick thinking rescued these two treasures from certain destruction as they were both about to be tossed in the dumpster. Both were carefully removed by him and saved. Great care was taken to see that the large American flag never touched the ground during this process. Our consignor took them home and has held them there until now. The time has come to offer these items to the ultimate Yankee fan who has both the room and the ability to care for these two treasures. A once in a lifetime opportunity. The large Yankee banner measures 8 feet by 5 feet with the American flag 12 feet by 7 and a half. Both show great signs of there service with the American flag exhibiting the most. Included is a notarized letter from the consignor detailing how the events unfolded that resulted in the saving of these pieces of Yankee history.
