1950-2014 New York Yankees Yearbook Complete Collection (76)
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,320
Complete collection of New York Yankees yearbooks, beginning with the first edition in 1950 and continuing through 2014. Interestingly, the first five yearbooks were not official Yankees publications, but were instead issued by the Jay Publishing Company. Even after the Yankees began producing official yearbooks in 1955, Jay Publishing continued to produce its own rival version through 1965. This comprehensive collection includes both the official Yankee yearbook and the Jay Publishing yearbook for the years 1955 to 1965. In our listing, we have graded each yearbook and noted the respective edition for each official Yankees yearbook, through the 1965 season. (The Yankees often issued revised editions during the course of the season.) 1950 (Vg, with water staining along the spine), 1951 (second edition; with Mickey Mantle; Vg), 1952 (light toning along the edges of the back cover, otherwise Nr-Mt), 1953 (Ex), 1954 (tiny area of foxing on front cover, otherwise Ex-Mt), 1955 (official; Vg), 1955 (Jay Publishing; Ex), 1956 (second edition; Vg), 1956 (Jay Publishing; Vg), 1957 (official; first edition; Gd), 1957 (Jay Publishing; Vg, with tape repair on back cover), 1958 (official; second edition; Vg), 1958 (Jay Publishing; Vg), 1959 (official; second edition; Vg-Ex), 1959 (Jay Publishing; Ex), 1960 (official; first edition; Vg), 1960 (Jay Publishing; Vg), 1961 (official; first edition; Vg, with a number of ink notations on the Maris and Mantle pages), 1961 (Jay Publishing; Vg), 1962 (official; first edition; Vg), 1962 (Jay Publishing; Vg-Ex), 1963 (official; second edition; Ex), 1963 (Jay Publishing; Vg-Ex), 1964 (official; first edition; Vg-Ex), 1964 (Jay Publishing; Ex), 1965 (official; first edition; Fr-Gd, water staining throughout), 1965 (Jay Publishing; stamped price on cover from secondhand dealer, otherwise Ex).
