Red Foley vs. the New York Yankees

I'm currently on vacation. I figure this is a good time to share more from Red Foley's Cartoon History of Baseball. As I've mentioned before, I wish they would update the book - and sell it in trading card form! Today, we look at the New York Yankees.

Despite the Yankees' struggles in the 1980s, they still are the team with the most successful history. There are very few years in the franchise's history that are included but not worth mentioning. It's interesting to see that there is a very quiet period of time following the end of the Ruth-Gehrig era until Mantle and Maris got going. My favorite panel is the tribute to Gehrig, with the Ruth goodbye panel and boating Steinbrenner coming in second.
