NEW YORK YANKEES: YOGI BERRA, WHITEY FORD and TONY KUBEK
11x14 color photo, together at a stadium event, signed by all three and framed to 15x18
Photograph signed: "Whitey Ford", "Yogi Berra", "Tony Kubek". Color, 10¾x13½ image, 15¼x18 overall. Yogi Berra (1925-2015), a fine defensive catcher and handler of pitchers, 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 14 World Series - on the winning team 10 times - and made every All-Star team from 1948 to 1962. As manager of the Yankees and later the Mets, Berra is one ofonly three Major League managers (along with Joe McCarthy and Sparky Anderson) to win World Championships 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" and "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded". Edward "WHITEY" FORD (1928-2020) was the "money pitcher" on the great Yankee teams of the 1950s and early 1960s, earning him the moniker "Chairman of the Board". The wily southpaw's lifetime record of 236-106 gives him the best winning percentage (.690) of any 20th century pitcher. He paced the American League in victories three times, and in ERA and shutouts twice. The 1961 Cy Young Award winner still holds many World Series records, including 10 wins and 94 strikeouts, once pitching 33 consecutive scoreless innings in the Fall Classic. Whitey Ford has the most career wins in the history of the New York Yankees with 236. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1974. TONY KUBEK(b.1936) was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1957, hitting .297 and showing amazing versatility as he spent substantial time in the infield 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. Disgusted with trends in the game, Kubek quit announcing after the baseball strike of 1994. Fine condition. Not framed in the Gallery of History style.
