Autograph Note signed: "To Tyler,/Best Wishes/Don Mattingly", 8½x11. Signed on New York Yankees letterhead with the Yankee logo. Accompanied by unsigned photo (color, 3½x5½) of Mattingly in Yankees uniform. First baseman Don Mattingly played his entire Major League career (1982-1995) with the New York Yankees, and donned the pinstripes again as hitting coach (2003) and then bench coach (2006). A 6-time All-Star (1984-1989) and 9-time Gold Glove, Mattingly captured the AL batting title in 1984, hitting .343, the first Yankee since Lou Gehrig to hit over .340. He was American League MVP in 1985. The following year he set all-time Yankee marks for hits (238) and doubles (53) in a season. Back injuries plagued Mattingly in the 1990s, derailing what had previously looked like a Hall of Fame career. Don Mattingly's sister Dinah is married to basketball great Larry Bird, a fellow Indiana native. He launched an innovative line of baseball and softball equipment in 2005. Immensely popular with Yankee fans, Mattingly has a plaque in Yankee Stadium's Monument Park. It reads, "A humble man of grace and dignity, a captain who led by example, proud of the pinstripe tradition and dedicated to the pursuit of excellence, a Yankee forever." A Yankees coach, but passed over for the managerial position, Mattingly followed manager Joe Torre to Los Angeles, taking over as Dodgers manager in 2011. Slightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
