The bat is signed by 14 players, coaches and the manager of the 1996 World Series Champion New York Yankees, including: Joe Torre, Dwight Gooden, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Darryl Strawberry, Bernie Williams, Wade Boggs, Jim Leyritz, Jimmy Key, Tino Martinez, David Weathers, Tim Raines, Coach Don Zimmer, Charlie Hayes and Dave Pavlas.

The 1996 season saw the rise of young players  who formed the core of the team for years to come, including rookie shortstop Derek Jeter and second-year pitcher Mariano Rivera, who served as setup man in 1996 before becoming closer in 1997. Aided by these young players, the Yankees won their first AL East title in 15 years. They defeated the Texas Rangers in the ALDS, and in ALCS beat the Baltimore Orioles 4–1, which included a notable fan interference by Jeffrey Maier that was called as a home run for the Yankees. In the World Series the team rebounded from an 0–2 series deficit and defeated the defending champion Atlanta Braves, ending an 18-year championship drought. Jeter was named Rookie of the Year.

The bat is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Beckett Authentic and its original Field of Dreams LOA. The bat presents with little to no wear with bold Sharpie signatures. Near Mint to Mint condition.
