The Hall of Fame catcher and Yankee manager signs this piece of calligraphic quotation art
Quotation signed: "Yogi Berra", in blue ink, 1p, 15x11. Calligraphic art of one of his quotations: "He's the boss. He can do what he wants, I'm used to this. This is the third time I've been fired. That's what this game is - managers are hired to be fired. I know it's an old saying, but that's what it is. - Yogi Berra". Berra was, of course, referring here to Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. A fine defensive catcher and handler of pitchers, Yogi Berra (1925-2015) 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 14 World Series - on the winning team 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 World Championships in both leagues. He entered the Hall of Fame in 1972. Berra is also famous for enriching the language with puzzling 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." Fine condition.
