The most successful American franchise teams ever

Things are done a little differently over in the States, with every sport proclaiming their national champions as ‘world champions’. Whilst that may seem ridiculous, there are some franchises who have gone above and beyond when it comes to their overwhelming success throughout the course of their history.

Some stumbled onto greatness by accident, meanwhile others built up teams that were quite simply unstoppable. Whatever the case may be these teams, each in their own right, have earned the right to call themselves the best of the best.

Of course, if you’re a fan of one of these thirteen, then all we’re really doing is stroking your likely massive ego. On the opposite end of the scale, rival fans can bask in the knowledge that every dog has it’s day. Well, most of the time.

So there you have it – the New York Yankees unsurprisingly reign supreme as the most successful American sports franchise ever. One day someone will come along and knock them off of their perch, but don’t hold your breath given their overwhelming lead in the present day.

At this point, fans of teams who don’t appear on this list should just be grateful when their side makes it to the post-season. The truth hurts, guys.
