Description1953 Bowman Color Yogi Berra #121 PSA VG+ 3.5. When there is mention of the 1950's Yankees, the Mick is immediately thought of as the brightest star but he was by far not the only immense talent on a team that experienced six World Championships and eight pennant titles from 1950-1959. The Yankees also won it all in 1949 thanks in large part to this their squat little backstop who served as the sun in a galaxy of newly forming talents and egos. No Bronx Bomber in history is more decorated than the beloved Berra, earning two full fists of World Championship jewelry during his eighteen seasons as a player, as well as three American League MVP Awards in a five-season span. Every accounting of the team's all-time greats finds Berra installed prominently within the top ten, with some placing him alongside Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Mantle in the upper half of that ranking. Thus it come as no surprise that this Impeccable 1953 Bowman Color card, high #121, that features the smiling pinstriped giant will bring some frenzied bidding from the Yankee faithful.
Offered is a 1953 Bowman Color Yogi Berra #121 graded PSA VG+ 3.5.
Guide Value or Estimate: $200 - up.
Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
