PHIL RIZZUTO and TONY KUBEK
Giant, 20x16, photograph of the New York Yankees shortstops and future baseball announcers.
Photograph signed: "Tony Kubek/#10" and "Phil Rizzuto/#10". B/w, 20x16. PHIL "SCOOTER" RIZZUTO (1916-2007) was an All-Star shortstop five times, and he was named the American League MVP in 1950, when he peaked with a .324 average and 200 hits. Rizzuto played on nine pennant winners and seven World Champions over his 13-year career. He was one of the most skillful bunters of all time. A long-time Yankee broadcaster known for his exclamation, "Holy cow!" Rizzuto saw his uniform #10 retired by the club in 1985. He entered the Hall of Fame in 1994. ANTHONY CHRISTOPHER "TONY" KUBEK (born in 1936) was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1957, hitting .297 and showing amazing versatility as he spent substantial time in the outfield, at shortstop, and at third base, with brief early stints at second base and first base as well. He became the Yankees' regular shortstop in 1958. For eight seasons he and second baseman Bobby Richardson formed one of baseball's best double-play combinations. A dangerous neck and back condition forced Kubek to retire at the age of 29, but he quickly became one of television's most successful baseball announcers. Minor surface creases (not evident head on) at background. Authentication sticker affixed at lower right portion. Fine condition.
