"We have created a unique display featuring ten richly finished, cherry hardwood baseballs, laser engraved with the series year and date, teams, game scores, and the World Series logo for that year. The first Yankee World Series collection memorializes each of the Yankees' first ten World Series Championships from 1923 through 1943.
