CARL YASTRZEMSKI and GAYLORD PERRYSigned color photo of both, chatting on the field before a game in their final season Photograph signed: "Carl Yastrzemski", "Gaylord/Perry". Color, 10x8. Since Perry is wearing a KC Royals uniform, we know this picture was taken in 1983, the final season for both players. CARL YASTRZEMSKI replaced Ted Williams in left field for the Boston Red Sox in 1961 and followed him into the Hall of Fame in 1989. When he retired after 23 years, Yastrzemski ranked first in career games (3,308), third in at-bats (11,988) and walks (1,845), sixth in total bases (5,539), seventh in hits (3,419) and doubles (646), and ninth in RBI (1,844). He was the first American League player with both 3,000 hits and 400 homers. Although he won three batting titles, played in 18 All-Star games, and was acknowledged as the finest defensive left fielder of his time, "Yaz" will be primarily remembered by Red Sox rooters for his Triple Crown/MVP 1967 season. That was the year of The Impossible Dream in which the Sox, 9th place in 1966 and dormant for more than a decade, took the powerful St. Louis Cardinals to the seventh game of the World Series. "Yaz" was also captain of the 1975 team, which suffered another heartbreaking 7-game Series loss to the even more powerful Cincinnati Reds. GAYLORD PERRY pitched for the San Francisco Giants (1962-1971), Cleveland Indians (1972-1975), Texas Rangers (1975-1977, 1980), San Diego Padres (1978-1979), New York Yankees (1980), Atlanta Braves (1981), Seattle Mariners (1982-1983) and Kansas City Royals (1983). He won the AL Cy Young Award in 1972 and the NL Cy Young Award in 1978, becoming the first pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in both leagues. In 22 years, Perry won 314 games, striking out 3,534 batters. His brother, Jim Perry, notched another 215 wins, making the Perry's second only to Phil and Joe Niekro for most career wins by brothers. Gaylord Perry was notorious for throwing illegal spitballs. He didn't have to throw spitters very often, because batters were thrown off balance just looking for them. Fine condition.
