Celebrate the most famous team in sports history with a stunning new book that takes fans on a trip down memory lane: Yankee Greats (Stewart, Tabori & Chang; $19.95), by Bob Woods.
This unique book features front and back images of 100 classic baseball cards from Topps, which, since 1951, has been as much a part of baseball as the Yankees. The cards feature the most popular Yankees from the team’s storied history, from Joe DiMaggio to Derek Jeter.
From Topps' first baseball card set, the quirky “Red and Blue” cards, to their latest series, millions of fans have been able to celebrate the game and players through the familiar photos-on-cardboard format. Now, for the very first time, the Yankees and Topps have joined together to offer fans a unique package that provides a fun and fresh link between America’s pastime and one of the sport’s most beloved teams.
Yankee Greats comes with four classic cards, presented in the new 2012 Topps baseball star design. The players featured are Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Reggie Jackson, and Paul O’Neill, and the new cards are exclusive to the book.
