YOGI BERRA Limited edition 11x14 color photo of the catcher as a rookie, signed with his birth name, nickname, and his years with the Yankees in blue felt tip Photograph signed: "Larry Yogi Berra/N.Y. Yankees 46-63", in blue felt tip, color, 11x14. Numbered "39/250" in unknown hand in blue felt tip. The future Hall of Famer is pictured as a rookie in 1947 wearing #35 before he was given #8. 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 nonsensical 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." Signature partially lifted from photo, but still legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
