YOGI BERRA The skilled catcher signs this black and white photo of a controversial moment in Game 1 of the 1955 World Series Photograph signed: "Yogi Berra/ He was out!", in blue felt tip, b/w, 8x10. With the Brooklyn Dodgers trailing the New York Yankees 6-4 in the 8th inning of the first game of the 1955 World Series, and Whitey Ford on the mound, Jackie Robinson tried to steal home. In this photograph, taken at Yankee Stadium on September 28, 1955, catcher YOGI BERRA (1925-2015) tags a sliding Jackie Robinson. Umpire Bill Summers called Robinson safe. Yogi objected vociferously. Fifty years later, he still claims Robinson was out. The Yankees won the game 6-5 but lost the World Series in seven games as the Brooklyn Dodgers won their first and only World Series. Through hard work and the help of Bill Dickey, Berra became a great catcher. Berra 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 was named the Yankees' manager for the 1964 season. The day after the Series ended, the Yankees fired him. He 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. Fine condition.
