BOBBY RICHARDSON
Signature from the New York Yankee in black ink
Signature: "Bobby Richardson", in black ink, 4¼x3½. Bobby Richardson (b. 1935) played his entire career with the New York Yankees (1955-1966), playing second base on seven Yankee pennant-winners. He had great range and was particularly adept at turning the double play. Teamed with shortstop Tony Kubek, he led the AL in double plays four times. He won five consecutive Gold Gloves (1961-1965). Though Richardson hit .301 in 1959, the singles hitter was not usually one of the Yankees' major offensive threats. An exception was his sensational performance in the 1960 World Series, which won him Series MVP honors. He batted .367 with 11 hits, a grand slam, and eight runs scored. He set World Series records with 12 total RBI and 6 RBI in Game Three, though he had driven in only 26 runs during the regular season. In 1961, he tied records for a five-game Series with nine hits and 23 at-bats, for a .391 average. He dramatically ended the 1962 Series when he caught Willie McCovey's hard liner with two on and two out in the ninth inning of Game Seven to preserve the Yankees' 1-0 victory over San Francisco. In 1964, Richardson batted .406 as the Yankees lost the World Series to St. Louis. Shortly before his death in 1995, his teammate Mickey Mantle became a born-again Christian due to his sharing his faith with him. At Mantle's request, Richardson, an ordained Baptist minister, officiated at his funeral. Corners lightly worn and creased. Stray ink note on bottom right corner. Lightly toned. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
