    Description

    1948 Bowman Yogi Berra #6 Rookie PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. Sabermetrics calculates him to be the greatest catcher of all time, and his thirteen World Championship rings, including a record ten as a player, commemorate a record as untouchable as any in the sport. Berra was notorious for being one of the toughest outs in the Major Leagues when at the plate, five times recording more home runs than strikeouts in a season. But in his defensive role Berra was arguably even better, topping the Junior Circuit eight times in putouts as catcher, three times in assists, and once in fielding percentage.

    The presented card finds the beloved backstop in the earliest days of his Hall of Fame career, just on the brink of a five-season reign of World Championship dominance in the Bronx. Only a hint of typical toning of the paper suggests nearly seven decades of existence, as the corners remain sharp, the surfaces clean. Image registration is perfect, and centering is well within acceptable parameters. Only eleven examples have ever charted higher.
