Description: Rare and Important Yankee Stadium terra cotta baseball architectural ornament c.1923.

Decorative piece was one of several baseball related ornaments affixed to the exterior of Yankee Stadium and removed in 1973 by the Invirex Demolition Co. during the stadium renovations. The mask itself remains in remarkably good condition given its exterior display and original fragility with only some minor surface crazing and a few chips to the edges from removal. Interesting architectural Yankee Stadium related artifact which is the first of its type that we have encountered: VG-EX
