HANK BAUER. Magazine Cover signed: "Best Wishes/Hank Bauer". Color, 8¼x11½. Complete "Sports Illustrated" magazine, July 22, 1957 issue, picturing Bauer on the cover. Cover story: "The Yankees/5 big questions answered for the first time". Six-page spread (pages 8-13) inside. Henry Albert "Hank" Bauer (1922-2007) didn't give away runs or make mental mistakes, and he had a fierce determination to win. Bauer collected nine World Series checks while with the Yankees. A solid hitter with both power and speed, Bauer started three straight All-Star games (1952-1954), and he hit 26 HRs in 1956 and 18 first-inning leadoff HRs in his career. Bauer hit a three-run triple in the finale of the 1951 WS, and he secured the 4-3 win over the Giants with a sliding catch in right field as the would-be tying run was streaking home. From 1956-1958, Bauer set a WS record with a 17-game hitting streak. He was eventually traded to the A's in the deal that brought Roger Maris to New York. Bauer later managed the Orioles to the 1966 World Championship. Lightly creased, light diagonal crease at the "s" of Wishes. Slightly soiled. ¼-inch separation at lower margin of front cover, ½-inch tear at lower blank margin of one page. Overall, fine and interesting.
