A high-quality reproduction based on Dave Hobrecht's original charcoal and pastel painting of all-time great New York Yankees catcher, Yogi Berra. Hobrecht's timeless and iconic depiction of Yankees great, Yogi Berra portrays the young catcher during his rookie season in 1947 as he straps on the "tools of ignorance" (catcher's gear). Berra played for 19 years in the major leagues, all with the Yankees and won 3 American League MVP awards in the 1950s. Yogi is considered the greatest catcher of all time to many baseball experts and fans, and he is beloved for his cheerful personality and humorous malaprops, or Yogi-isms. And notice the number 35 on Yogis stirrup sock? Although he is known for wearing the number 8, which the Yankees retired, he wore numbers 38 and 35 in first two big league seasons. Available in Black.
