The New York Yankees

The Boys of Summer

...Rolex Super-Coolness...

The New York Yankees

What seemed predestined when the New York Yankees were the best team in baseball in the first half of the season and looked doubtful with their subpar play in the second half, was made official this week. A 5-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays gave the Yankees their 20th American League East title.

Having clinched the division, many of their star players are not playing, rocking their Rolexes in the dugout. Gleyber Torres was wearing a Day-Date, Anthony Rizzo a Batman, and Luis Severino wore an Oysterflex Daytona. Big thanks to @Ernie45 for those pictures.

Reggie Jackson

"Mr. October"

Legendary Baseball Player

Pepsi GMT-Master

Paul Boutros from Phillip's Auction House was at the U.S. Open Golf Tournament back in June of 2019 and he snapped this super picture of baseball legend Reggie Jackson (Mr. October) rockin' his vintage Pepsi GMT-Master [Reference 1675].

Seeing Reggie at the U.S. Open reminded me of this vintage Rolex ad from 1969.

As a child, Reggie Jackson was one of my heroes and great role models.

Reggie Jackson is a renowned car collector and obviously a big Rolex collector as we see him sporting many different Rolex watches. In the photos below we see Reggie waring a white gold Rolex Submariner with a blue dial and bezel.

In the two photos below we see Reggie rockin both a white and yellow gold Rolex Daytona.
