2012 New York Yankees Official Yearbook – ON SALE NOW

April 18, 2012 – The 2012 New York Yankees Official Yearbook is on sale now.

The cover of this commemorative publication features 22 artifacts from the New York Yankees Museum (located at Yankee Stadium).

Brian Richards, who is the curator of the New York Yankees Museum, was invaluable in allowing us access to every one of the rare artifacts that he is charge of.

Team photographer James Petrozzello arranged the artifacts and took what I believe is the most elegant photo ever displayed on the cover of a New York Yankees Yearbook.

And, senior editor Nathan Maciborski came up with the idea for this concept, which led to the compelling cover.

The artifacts in the beautifully lit photo stand out from afar, but it’s the significance of each piece of memorabilia that makes the cover as special as it is.

There are two jerseys in the photo. Babe Ruth wore one of the jerseys in 1932, Derek Jeter wore the other one during the game in which he collected his 3,000th career hit.

The cap that Mickey Mantle wore during the 1961 season is also in the photo, as is a signed baseball from Don Larsen’s Perfect Game in the 1956 World Series. The mitt that Yogi Berra caught Larsen’s Perfect Game is not on our cover, but Berra’s glove from the 1952 and 1953 seasons is.

Additionally, a ticket stub from Game 6 of the 2009 World Series and one from the first game at the current Yankee Stadium grace the yearbook cover along with the bat Ruth used to hit the first home run at the old Yankee Stadium, a bat used by Lou Gehrig in 1923 and the bat Mantle used to hit his record setting 16th career World Series home run.

Finally, this ultimate display of Yankees greatness through the years would not be complete without an artifact from the life and career of the late George Steinbrenner.

Well, we’ve included eight pieces that represent the Boss. The wooden name plate from Steinbrenner’s office at the old Yankee Stadium along with each of his seven World Series rings are in the middle of the photo.

In addition to this one-of-a-kind cover, the many stories within the Yearbook make it a valuable keepsake. From a feature about Jorge Posada’s legendary career to an inside look at Michael Pineda to a section dedication to the history of the Yankees pinstripes, the 2012 New York Yankees Official Yearbook is as comprehensive as any baseball publication you will find.

You can order your copy by calling (800) GO-YANKS or through www.yankees.com/publications. The Yearbook will also be on sale at Yankee Stadium throughout the 2012 season, and the on-line version is also available through www.yankees.com/publications.
