    Description


    c. 1930s Bill Dickey New York Yankees Vintage Photograph. Only Yogi Berra, who shares ownership of the number "8" jersey retired in Yankee Stadium's Monument Park, owns more New York Yankees World Championship rings than this man, who claimed eight as a player and six more as a coach and manager. In fact, it was Dickey who taught Berra the art of catching at the Big League level, making him arguably the most important Yankee ever to wear the tools of ignorance. Famed Yankee scout was such a fan of the young prospect that he assured general manager Ed Barrow, "I will quit scouting if this boy does not make good."
    Pictured in full Yankee pinstripe glory, Dickey is posted swinging the bat before a contest. Measuring 6.5x8.5" the vintage photograph exhibits light wear with mild corner wrinkling. Reverse features graphite editorial markings and a "Bettmann Archive" sticker that obscured whatever stamping may once have existed below.
