Photograph signed: "Ted Williams" in blue ink and "Yogi Berra" in black ink. B/w, 19x15 (visible). Matted to 24x19¾ in a grey-and-black matte. With letter of authenticity from James Spence Authentication and Heritage Auction Galleries. This photo was taken during a game between perennial rivals the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, with Hall of Famer Yogi Berra backstopping against fellow Hall of Famer Ted Williams. Berra is standing well outside the strike zone and, even though the ball is shown only feet from the plate, Williams hasn't started his swing. Hall of Famer TED WILLIAMS (1918-2002), born Theodore Samuel William in San Diego, California) played outfield for the Boston Red Sox from 1939-1960, taking off time to fight in World War II and Korea. He was the last to hit over .400 (.406 in 1941), leading the American League in hitting six times. His lifetime batting average is .344 with 521 home runs. The Splendid Splinter's accomplishments include two Triple Crowns, two MVPs, six American League batting championships and 18 All-Star Game selections. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1966. A fine defensive catcher and handler of pitchers YOGI BERRA (1925-2015), born Lawrence Peter Berra in St. Louis, Missouri, 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 a record 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 of only three Major League managers (along with Joe McCarthy and Sparky Anderson) to win pennants 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", "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded", and "It's déjà vu all over again." Matte is lightly creased in corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
