Original Yankee Stadium Architectural Plan Part D Addition Wall Sections 1927

These are the exact architectural drawings for the construction of Yankee Stadium, hand-inked in 1921 by the nation's finest architects and engineers.

In 1920, after the New York Yankees owners, L'Hommedieu and Ruppert were feeling the pressure from their landlord to make a change to their Polo Grounds, they reached out to the leading builder of ballparks in the country, Osborn Architects and Engineers. Before being hired by the Yankees to construct one of the greatest sports arenas in history, Osborn constructed Comiskey Park in 1910, the Polo Grounds in 1911, as well as Tiger Stadium and Fenway Park in 1912. However, it was with Yankee Stadium that Osborn was called upon to put forth what many would agree to have been their greatest effort.

These original drawings date back to 1921 and depict every detail from the interior to the exterior of the stadium. Also included are the drawings from the additions and modifications later made in the late 1920's, 1930's and even through the immediate post war years of the 1940's.

The New York Times states on September 18th, 2008 in an article, titled, "Precisely Drawn Mementos of the House that Osborn Built," that these blueprints were acquired from a Lelands Auction by NJ memorabilia collector and dealer, Mitch Baker. The article also mentions that Yankee Stadium was both the first triple-deck stadium built in addition to being the first ballpark to call itself a stadium.

The bottom right hand corner of every plan states:

Architectural plan for Yankee Stadium reading: American Baseball Club of New York. Yankee Stadium Part D Addition Wall Sections. Drawn 7-19-27. 2'x3' in size.
