This Ad From 1923 Boasts The Brand New Yankee Stadium’s Asbestos Roofing

On one hand, asbestos is a major health hazard. On the other: 27 world championships. 

On one hand, asbestos is a major health hazard. On the other: 27 world championships. I’m sure the Chicago Cubs will keep this in mind during their upcoming Wrigley Field renovations.


The New York Yankees won their first of 26 World Championships in “The House That Ruth Built” in the year of its opening, 1923. The team clinched title #27 at their new ballpark, also called Yankee Stadium, in the year of its opening, 2009. Their pursuit of #28 came to an early end when they were eliminated from playoff contention earlier this week. 

That said, it’s not like things are at all boring right now in the Bronx.
