Joe Girardi Signed 1996 World Series Baseball w/ "96 WS Champs" Insc.
When the Yankees needed to find a new manager following the 2007 season, they turned to their former catcher, Joe Girardi. A member of three World Series Championships as a player in New York, Girardi wasted little time adding a managerial championship to his resume. In 2009, just his second season on the job, Girardi led the Yankees to their 27th World Series Title. He had been sporting the #27 on his back since arriving in the Bronx, and made the switch to #28 in 2010 - signifying his new goal. Girardi led the Yanks to their 27th World Championship during that magical 2009 season. Joe Girardi has hand signed this official 1996 World Series Logo baseball. A Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity is included.
