The Yankees script is not used in their classic N over Y uniform logo. That logo is derived for the NYPD medal for valor; a web search will reveal the back story, History of the New York Yankees Logo | Fine Print Art and Design Blog has a version with details. The Yankees have such a long history of success, now spanning nearly 80 years of consistent dominance, it’s hard to have overrated players. For a player to be overrated, they would need to not achieve the ultimate goals of sport – which is championships – and the Yankees have plenty. Although on the flip side, in order to be overrated, you need to be highly regarded to begin with – the Yankees have those too. There are candidates. Their candidacy for most overrated is there, but they all have pros (for being overrated) and cons (for not being overrated) for that case.

Extremely highly regarded, the face of the modern dynasty. He played about 4 more seasons worth of games than any other Yankee position player – so in terms of Plate Appearances/WAR, Jeter comes in worse than players like: Charlie Keller, Gil McDougald, Snuffy Stirnweiss, Willie Randolph, Graig Nettles, Phil Rizutto and Tony Lazerri. Statistically, although defensive stats are still unreliable, every system I’ve seen slates him in at best as mediocre in his prime. At worst, he’s among the biggest defensive liabilities career-wise that’s ever played. Players who aren’t of very high quality just don’t get 3,000+ hits. He didn’t get there by simply hanging on forever – he was mediocre in 2014, but one season past your prime isn’t that ridiculous. He was an integral part of the modern dynasty. The mental strain of playing in the NY media market can not be understated. That he could actually be the spokesman for the club for that long without major issue is just incredible.
