Description

    1946 Yogi Berra Unsigned New York Yankees Rookie Contract. He's on every top ten list of all-time Yankee greats, and more than a few folks have him in the top five with Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Mantle. The presented contract finds the hilarious Hall of Famer at the very start of his pinstriped tenure, the four-page document dated "this 21st day of September, A.D. 1946," just one day before he'd homer in his Major League debut. Though the contract lacks a signature from Berra, it does offer that of another enshrinee from the Bronx in the form of George Weiss, whose black fountain pen ink autograph rates 9/10. The contract is folded lengthwise at center with scattered toning but presents well. Letter of provenance from Berra family.
