1996, 1998, and 1999 NY Yankees Team-Signed Wheaties Boxes (3)
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,840.00
Collection of three special edition Wheaties boxes, issued to honor the 1996, 1998, and 1999 World Championship NY Yankees, each beautifully signed by the respective team. 1) 1996 box has 30+ signatures ("8") in blue ink including Jeter, Torre, Pettitte, Cone, Gooden, B. Williams, etc., and is in Excellent condition. 2) 1998 box has 30 signatures ("8") in blue and black ink including Jeter, Torre, Rivera, Wells, O'Neill, etc. and the box is in Excellent condition. 3) 1999 box has 22 signatures ("8") in black ink including Jeter, Torre, Clemens, etc., and the box is in Excellent condition. Wheaties has used sports stars in its advertising and on its boxes dating back to the 1930s. It is a modern Wheaties tradition to honor the World Champs on the front of its boxes. We suspect that very few of these boxes have been signed in this manner (we have seen no others), making these boxes among the most interesting, and possibly among the rarest, of all Yankee team-signed display pieces of the era. Total 3 boxes. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,840.00
