NOTES:
 
    The first fan appreciation day took place on September 25, 1954 after the Yankees record of 5 consecutive World Series Championships, came to an end. A "Salute to The Champions Night" program was handed out, and on the cover was a letter from Yankee President Dan Topping, more or less giving an apology for not winning six in a row. Although the Yankees won 103 games that year, they finished 8 games behind Cleveland who won 111. Over the years the Yankees held many Fan Appreciation Days, including the most popular team photo mugs given out from 1977-1995.

 On Saturday, September 21, 1968 the New York Yankees saluted their fans with a Yankee Stadium Fan Appreciation Day, team photo fold-out, picturing Yankee Stadium on the front. The back, like the 1954 hand out, features a letter from the Yankees President Michael Burke. This time more of an apology for not having a winning season in a number of years.

 The letter reads: "Dear Yankee Fan, - All Ball clubs appreciate their fans, of course, but the New York Yankees are especially appreciative of your wonderfully loyal support, particularly in these lean years when we have found ourselves at the wrong end of the standings. Like an act of friendship in time of need, your enthusiasm has given your club lively encouragement and spurred our determination to bring back a winner. . . Once again, Yankee home attendance in 1968 will exceed a million. So more than a million thanks to all of you from all the Yankees. Sincerely Michael Burke"

 The inside of the trifold is the 1968 New York Yankees official team photo. to the right lists the players row by row, and at the bottom, above the Yankees logo reads: Al Downing absent when picture was taken. The left flap features two pictures of Mickey Mantle.
