Hey all, super pumped to finally get a vintage Yankees lineup card from the Stengel era. Doesn’t have Mantle in the lineup but features Berra and is from the heart of the Yankees dynasty.
Here’s the issue though - the lineup shown doesn’t match any game from 1955 or 1956. This leads me to consider 3 options:
1) it was from a Spring Training game
2) it was a lineup that was written up but hanged before the actual game
3) it was a lineup from the Yankees tour of Japan
I would love to see if I can find a game that matches the lineup shown from either ST or Japan. Every player shown played on the team in Japan and Mantle did not play for the 2nd half of the tour so I think it’s a reasonably possibility.
Any help would be awesome in locating box scores from either ST or the Japan trio from 1955.
