Sale Price $180.00
Signed photo, shown with Ted Williams and Dick Stuart during Spring Training
Photograph signed: "Carl Yastrzemski". B/w 10x8. Associated Press photo, captioned in left margin, showing Yastrzemski with Ted Williams (by this time a batting coach) and first baseman Dick Stuart at Spring Training in Scottsdale, Arizona. CARL YASTRZEMSKI replaced Ted Williams, shown here, 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 (1961-1983), 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. Corners and edges creased. Lightly toned. Multiple library ink stamps on verso (no show through). Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise fine condition.
