Description: Important 1923 New York Yankees "World's Champions" gold pocket watch presented to Doc Woods. Five sided watch by Gruen is beautifully engraved on back of the casing with a batter, pitcher, and catcher scene. "Yankees" is lettered across the top and a caption below reads "World's Champions 1923." Engraved on the interior, "Presented by Yankee Baseball Club To A.A. Woods" and marked "Gruen Verithin" along with "14K.G." The original face (under glass) has a few very small areas of discoloration (mostly at top) and the watch displays some mild general handling and age wear. After losing the World Series to their cross town rival New York Giants in both 1921 and 22, the Yankees opened the 1923 season to great fanfare. The team introduced a newly built Stadium, summarily dubbed "The House That Ruth Built", and the crowd was not dissapointed when Babe christened it with a homerun. Finishing atop the American League they once again met the Giants in Championship play and this time emerged the victor; it was the foundation of Yankee dominance of baseball throughout the 20th Century and the first of a remarkable (27) World Series Championships to follow. An historically significant piece as presented to the Yankees highly regarded team physician and one of the more desirable pieces of 1920s era baseball related jewelry: EX
