Under "Cousin Ed's" direction, the Yankee dynasty became legend. He was in charge of the Yankees from 1920 to 1947.

Comments: I added this PSA 8 in May, 2005 when I won a Mark Irodenko / Outfield Sports eBay auction.

UPDATE: In May, 2014 a PSA 10 showed up on eBay with a BIN of $1200 from 4 Sharp Corners. Unfortunately, the price was too steep for me. Somebody disagreed because within a couple weeks the card was sold and no longer available - oh well. The search for an upgrade continues….

UPDATE: One on my saved eBay searches kicked back a hit the first week of December, 2014.  4SharpCorners was selling a PSA 9 for $449.  Tempting....but just too much.  SMR lists the card at $60.  

UPDATE: This gorgeous Barrow PSA 9 appeared on eBay in October, 2016 – one of only nine PSA 9s available.  I thought I’d win it for sure.  We were at Elitch’s, an amusement park in Denver.  I was standing in line with my son waiting to get on a ride, when I entered a last second bid.  $454.99 didn’t do it…crap.  The wait for an upgrade continues:
