Press pin, 1960 World Series
Museum of the City of New York
Without the Dodgers and Giants in town, one might have thought the Yankees would see an increase in attendance. But it didn't happen, even though the pinstripers continued to top the American League — five years running from 1960 through 1964. Then it seemed all the Yankees stars got old at once and the team was sold to CBS. Its fortunes did not rise again until George Steinbrenner purchased the club in 1973, hired Billy Martin, and brought in notable free agents like Catfish Hunter and Reggie Jackson.
