Signed color photograph of the MLB player, shown as shortstop for the Red Sox.
Photograph signed: "Rico Petrocelli", in blue ink. Color, 8x10. PSA/DNA sticker at lower margin. Two-time All Star Rico Petrocelli played his entire career with the Boston Red Sox (1965-1976) plus one game on September 21, 1963, when he went 1 for 4 with a double and an RBI. An All-Star in 1967 and 1969, Petrocelli played in the 1967 and 1975 World Series. In Game Six of the 1967 World Series, Petrocelli, Carl Yastrzemski, and Reggie Smith set a World Series record by hitting three homers in an inning (the fourth). It was Petrocelli's second shot to clear Fenway's Green Monster that game. His rare combination of power and infield glove work was displayed best in 1969, when he set an AL record for most home runs by a shortstop, with 40, and tied a then-record for fewest errors by a shortstop, with 14. Petrocelli was moved to third base in 1971 after Boston acquired Luis Aparicio, and led the league in fielding his first year at his new position. But elbow problems in 1974, and a leg injury and beaning in 1975, cost him playing time. He hit just seven HR in 1975, but batted .308 in the World Series. Inner-ear problems helped to end his career. PSA/DNA sticker at lower margin. Fine condition.
