1950-2011 New York Yankees Yearbook Near-Complete Run (65)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,080
Near-complete collection of New York Yankees yearbooks, beginning with the first edition in 1950 and continuing through 2011, including a few duplicates for some years. Missing only the years 2006, 2008, and 2010 for completion. Interestingly, the first five New York Yankees 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. Unless otherwise noted, all of the yearbooks after 1955 are the official Yankee publications and all are first editions. (The Yankees often issued revised editions during the course of the season.) The collection is comprised of the following years: 1950-1955, 1956 (two yearbooks, official edition and Jay Publishing), 1957, 1958 (revised edition), 1959 (revised edition), 1960 (two yearbooks, official revised edition and Jay Publishing), 1961, 1962 (third edition), 1963 (two yearbooks, official revised edition and Jay Publishing), 1964-1967, 1968 (2 copies, one is missing both covers and a few interior pages), 1969-1973, 1974 (missing record insert), 1975-1980, 1981 (2 copies; first and second editions), 1982 (two first editions), 1983-2005, 2007, 2009, and 2011. The yearbooks from 1950 to 1970 range from Poor to Very Good, averaging Good. The yearbooks from 1971 to 2011 range from Excellent to Near Mint, averaging Ex-Mt, with the exception of 1996 (Vg). Total: 65 yearbooks.
