SO LONG

YOGI BERRA

$20

MAIN LOT- 125 PAINTED

This last-living-day issue pays tribute to one of America's most-loved catchers in all of baseball history. A player for the New York Yankees his entire playing career, then coaching for the Mets, the main lot has Yogi portrayed in his Yankees cap, while the artist's proofs have him wearing his Mets Cap. When Yogi stepped up to the plate, he wasn't going up against the pitcher, rather, the pitcher was going up against Yogi. All pitchers knew if any pitch got anywhere close to the plate, Yogi was going to swing at it- and what Yogi swung at, he usually hit. For the opposing players on base, they knew their journey to home plate meant having to get past Yogi Berra.
