The 1998 New York Yankees swept the San Diego Padres in the World Series, which was part of a run where the Joe Torre-led Bombers won four World Series titles in five seasons. This 1998 team won a record 125 games during the season (including postseason) and were dominant throughout.

Presented is an actual Yankees championship Commissioner's trophy presented to Yankee pitcher Orlando Hernandez. El Duque was 12-4 in his rookie season with a 3.13 ERA and allowed only one earned run in the 1998 postseason in two starts (14 innings) and was 2-0. This trophy was awarded to the Yankee pitcher following the 1998 Fall Classic. The oversized prize is set upon a 7 ¼ -inch diameter base, which contains a gold band reading, "WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS – NEW YORK YANKEES 1998 ORLANDO HERNANDEZ." This trophy contains a gold-colored band, has a silver-colored baseball at its base and a crown at the top. The front of the display includes original press pins of the two World Series teams, Balfour made for the Yankees and unknown (no markings) for the Padres. Surrounding the base are 30 gold-colored flags representing the names of each Major League team. Left to right these flags begin with Anaheim and finish with Arizona on the right. This amazing piece of hardware weighs approximately 20 pounds and measures 12 inches tall at its peak. There is some tarnish and other abrasion marks on the gold-plated base, but the trophy is in good overall condition. This is an amazing trophy, presented to a key player from that historic team.
