    1940's Yogi Berra Original Photograph Used for 1950 Bowman Card, PSA/DNA Type 1.
    While most people conjure up thoughts of Yogiisms when Yogi Berra's name comes up, the backstop was one of the finest catchers the game of baseball has seen. Eighteen All-Star games, thirteen World Series rings and three Most Valuable Player Awards have Berra in the conversation of best catcher ever. A young Berra is featured on this original 8x10" photo during Spring Training. If the photo looks familiar it should, it was the same image which his 1950 Bowman card was modeled after. Berra has a baseball in one hand and catcher's mitt in the other as his mask rests to the side. The photo has minor surface loss in three spots on the white perimeter and a slight tear (fixed with transparent tape) which touches the mask. Another spot (slightly bigger than a tack hole) appears near the upper right corner. "Berra" is neatly written on the reverse corner for identification purposes in pencil. We consulted the auction archives and couldn't find another original photo from his '50 Bowman card to sell. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
