RALPH HOUK The New York Yankees manager who won six World Series Championships signed this collectible trading card in blue ink Baseball Card signed: "Ralph Houk". Color, 2½x3½. Facsimile signature in black print. Managerial win-loss record and biography on verso. Ralph Houk (1919-2010) made his MLB debut with the 1947 Yankees, hitting .272 in 41 games, before the arrival of Yogi Berra sent Houk back to the minors. He played only 50 more games in seven seasons as Berra's back-up. Following three years managing Denver and three as a Yankees coach, Houk replaced Casey Stengel as Yankees manager in 1961, winning World Championships his first two seasons and adding a pennant in 1963. Kicked upstairs after the Dodgers swept the '63 WS, he served as Yankees vice president and general manager until May 1966. Back on the field, Houk managed the Yankees (1966-73), the Tigers (1974-78) and the Red Sox (1981-84). After 20 years of managing, he stood tenth in games, wins, and losses, with a .514 winning percentage. With the Yankees dynasty of the mid-20th Century, Houk won an incredible 6 World Series Rings (three as a player, three as a coach and manager). Edges worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
