Scottsdale, Arizona, Saturday, January 29, 1977. American Airlines Golf Classic, gallery ticket, no. 018012. DiMaggio and Berra played together in two All-Star Games and four World Series. A fine defensive catcher and handler of pitchers, YOGI BERRA (1925-2015) was also a feared slugger and clutch hitter who led powerful Yankee teams in RBIs seven years in a row (1949-1955) and was named AL Most Valuable Player three times. Though famous for swinging at bad pitches, Yogi seldom struck out. He played in 14 World Series - on the winning team a record 10 times - and made every All-Star team from 1948 to 1962. As manager of the Yankees and later the Mets, Berra is one ofonly three Major League managers (along with Joe McCarthy and Sparky Anderson) to win World Championships in both leagues. He entered the Hall of Fame in 1972. Berra is also famous for enriching the language with puzzling expressions like "Ninety percent of this game is half mental" and "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded". JOE DIMAGGIO (1914-1999) played centerfield for the New York Yankees from 1936-1942 and 1946-1951 with a lifetime batting average of .325. The Hall of Famer waselected to the All-Star team in each year he played. He was the American League batting champion in 1939 and 1940 and the home run leader in 1948. Additionally, he holds the major league consecutive game-hitting streak of 56 (1941), thought to be baseball's greatest feat by many. He was Most Valuable Player in 1939, 1941, and 1947. DiMaggio retired after the 1951 season. At Baseball's 1969 Centennial Celebration, he was named the game's greatest living player. Tape remnant above punched hole at top blank edge.
