Fine condition. Johnny Bench (b. 1947) played his entire 17-year major league career with the Cincinnati Reds. Considered the greatest catcher of all time, he was a great player defensively and offensively. He broke Yogi Berra's lifetime record of most home runs as a catcher, won two home run titles, led the league in RBIs three times and was named MVP twice. In his best season (1970), Bench hit 45 home runs, earned a .293 batting average and a .345 OBP, and proved to be a more than capable backstop. He was a core component of the Reds dynasty nicknamed "the Big Red Machine", which peaked with back-to-back World Series victories in 1975 and 1976. Bench was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1989, his first year of eligibility. Slightly creased. Authentication label affixed at lower portion of number. Two items.
