1930s Knickerbocker Beer Yankees Premium Photo Overview

Knickerbocker.jpegThis premium photograph was distributed by Knickerbocker Beer sometime in the 1930s. The photo includes Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert along with three Yankees players, Joe DiMaggio, Tony Lazzeri, and Frank Crosetti.

In addition to the picture of the four men, their replica signatures are included as well as the Knickerbocker name and the print hailing it as, “New York’s Famous Beer.” To date, it is not known how these were distributed.

The beer producer being tied to the Yankees made sense as Rupert inherited the beverage company from his father.

All three of the Yankees players had exemplary careers. DiMaggio and Lazzeri both were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame and Crosetti won an astounding 17 combined World Series championships with the team as both a player and coach.
