DON LARSEN and YOGI BERRA
Signed 24x30 limited edition print on canvas of them celebrating the perfect game
Printed Art signed in ink: "Yogi Berra", "Don Larsen/PG 10-8-56". Color, 24x30. Digitally generated ink-jet (giclée) print on canvas, based on the famous photograph. Signed in black felt tip by both ballplayers and by the artist,"Steve Alpert/2006". Limited edition #25 of 100. Yankee pitcher DON LARSEN (born in 1929) was immortalized by his World Series perfect game on October 8, 1956 (witnessed by 64,519 fans). This was the only perfect game ever pitched in the World Series. Named the MVP of the series, Larsen, who had been knocked out in the second inning of Game Two, started Game Five. The Yankees would go on to become champs after beating the Brooklyn Dodgers by four games to three. A capable but usually not overpowering pitcher who adopted a no-windup delivery, Larsen won eleven games in 1956, his career high. A lifetime .242 batter, he had 14 career home runs and was used 66 times as a pinch hitter. Larsen was also the last active former St. Louis Brown. Shown here hugging Larsen on the mound after the historic triumph is YOGI BERRA, who had caught the game. A fine defensive catcher and handler of pitchers, Berra 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 winner 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 expressions like "Ninety per cent of this game is half mental", "Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded", and "déjà vu all over again." Fine condition.
