YOGI BERRA and WHITEY FORD
16x20 publicity photograph of the Yankee ballplayers talking on the dugout steps
Photograph signed: "Yogi Berra" and "Whitey Ford", both in blue felt tip, b/w, 16x20. Ford pitched and Berra caught for the New York Yankees in 1950 and from 1953-1963. Berra managed the Yankees in the World Series in 1964, losing to the Cardinals in the seventh game. He was fired the next day. Through hard work and the help of Bill Dickey, YOGI BERRA (1925-2015) became a great catcher. He led the American League in games caught and chances accepted eight times, and led the league in double plays six times. He is one of only four catchers to ever field 1.000 in a season (1958), and between July 28, 1957 and May 10, 1959, Berra set major league records by catching in 148 consecutive games and accepting 950 chances without making an error.He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.Berra took over as the Mets' manager in 1972 and led them to the NL pennant in 1973, joining Joe McCarthy as the second manager to win pennants in both leagues. 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. Fine condition.
