(AllHipHop News) America is two weeks into the National Football League season, but many citizens of New York City are probably more interested in Major League Baseball right now. While both the NFL’s Giants and Jets are at the bottom of their respective standings with 0-2 records, the MLB’s Yankees are close to winning the team’s first American League East Division title since 2012.
With the Bronx Bombers heading to the 2019 playoffs, it seems like the perfect time for sports brand New Era Cap and renowned film director Spike Lee to unveil their New York Yankees Championship Collection. The line features 7 unique 59FIFTY designs that pay tribute to the Yanks’ 27 World Series championships.
“We are honored to work with Spike Lee on the New Era x Spike Lee New York Yankees Championship Collection, our largest combined collection to date, which celebrates the New York Yankees 27 World Series titles,” says Tim Shanahan, Director of Baseball at New Era Cap. ”The Yankees logo has become a symbol that extends beyond sports, into entertainment and culture, and this collection celebrates the team’s iconic status.”
As of September 18, the Yankees maintain a 99-53 record. The franchise’s magic number to clinch the AL East is down to 1. The Yankees can win the division with a victory against the Los Angeles Angels tonight with legendary pitcher CC Sabathia scheduled to take the mound.
