No team, in any sport, enjoys a championship legacy as celebrated as the New York Yankees—and no book provides as thorough an exploration of that legacy as Yankee Classics. With year-by-year recaps filled with stories and photos, the book goes through all 40 World Series the Yankees have participated in, including the seven-game classics and the four-game cakewalks. Profiles of the biggest stars of the Fall Classic—from Ruth and Gehrig, to Berra and Mantle, to Jeter and Rivera—and detailed sidebars on the memorable moments, the October rivalries, and the lesser-known heroes round out this comprehensive look at an unprecedented sports success story.
