Book Photographsigned: "Best Wishes/Yogi Berra". B/w, 5½x3½. Through hard work and the help of Bill Dickey, Berra 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 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. This photo shows New York Giant Monte Irvin stealing home in Game 1 of the 1951 World Series. The Giants won the game, but the Yankees won the Series (4-2). Irregular bottom and right edge from removal of bound book. Slightly worn at top margin. Fine condition.
