The most unbreakable records in MLB history: 15 World Series appearances in 18 years

The New York Yankees are by far the most accomplished franchise in MLB history. With 40 appearances in the World Series, along with 27 titles, no one else compares. Their closest competition, the Arizona Cardinals, aren’t even in the same galaxy as they’ve won 11 World Series.

As impressive as winning 27 World Series is, that’s not the reason why we have them on this list.

Over a half-century ago, the Yankees went on the most ridiculous run in history. From 1947-1964, the Yankees appeared in 15 World Series. We’re fairly confident that it’ll never happen again.

Not only did they make 15 appearances in 18 seasons but they also made the best of those title shots. In total, the Yankees won 10 championships during their run, including five straight.

While players are generally bigger, stronger, and faster in today’s game, they also move around frequently. During the earlier years of baseball, it was commonplace for a player to spend the vast majority of his career in one destination. Now, with teams loading up consistently, going on the sort of run the Yankees did a half-century ago, simply isn’t going to happen.
