Nuttin' But The Yankee Hits Part 4th Of July

Legends Of NY is what I call this last part. Well, maybe not so much legends as maybe some names you will recognize. And what a day to showcase the fireworks then the 4th of July!

Panini 75th Cooperstown product was way underrated by collectors. It was a superb product and one that I pulled this on card autograph of Dave Winfield from.

Taking me back to the 90's is this Charlie Hays autograph.

I busted one box of Prime Cuts back in 2012 and pulled a redemption. That redemption was for this Whitey Ford that surprisingly only took a couple of months to arrive. Solid looking card and I like the inscription. As I have gotten older I have come to appreciate autographs of Hall Of Famers more than those of the newer generation.

Roy White. Sorry for the blurry pic. I miss this Topps product.

Goose Gossage has such a nice signature. I picked up this card for $3 from a Yard Sale. It was either signed in person or TTM.

Lindy McDaniel is another player with a solid autograph. I pulled this myself.

I honestly can't tell you a single thing about Steve Balboni. I have no idea who he is but a Yankee is a Yankee to me.

And finally, Bobby Richardson. I really wished Topps would revive this brand of retired legends autographs on chrome.
Well, other than some Derek Jeter relics, that's it for my Yankees hits. It's a really sad PC but I am happy with what I have so far but it still has a long ways to grow. 

As I am sorting some other Yankee cards out, I am thinking about doing another Yankees series on here of players I forgot wore pinstripes at one point. Should be interesting I think.

Thoughts on my Yankees hits PC is welcomed in comments!


  1. Some nice stuff in there! Balboni was a big boy who swung hard and occasionally got ahold of one.

    1. I figured he wasn't a superstar as I hadn't heard his name before. Good to know he made some impact.

  2. Love that White Ford autograph! I really should add a few more to my collection. Gotta support my fellow lefty... even if he's a Yankee.

  3. Balboni had a nice mustache. Winfield had a nice HOF career. Tomato, tomahto

    Happy 4th!!!

  4. Darn Yankees! Braves and Red Sox guy here so no Yankees love but thanks for the post. There are some nice cards there.
