Offered is a 1970s signed ball (Yogi Berra), bat (Harmon Killebrew), and Photograph (Rocky Colavito): 1) Hall of Famer Yogi Berra played 19 years in the Major Leagues (1946-63), all with the New York Yankees except for his last season which he played briefly as a player/coach with the New York Mets. A catcher who also played some outfield, Berra was one of only six players to have ever been a 3-time American League MVP. The 18-time All-Star was on 10 World Champion teams as a player. Berra signed and inscribed an Official American League Ball (Budig). In neatly scripted blue ink, Berra wrote, "To Dave/Happy Holidays/Yogi Berra 2000." Most of the ball is covered with thin, clear plastic. The ball is in excellent condition, and it has a hologram sticker. 2) Harmon Killebrew was a Hall of Fame slugger who played from 1954-74 with the Washington Senators/Minnesota Twins franchise and then finished his career with the 1975 Kansas City Royals. He played third base, first base, and left field. He batted .256 and belted 573 home runs. The offered bat is a Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger that is 34.75" in length, and it weighs 30.25 ounces. Etched on the barrel is GENUINE HARMON KILLEBREW LOUISVILLE SLUGGER. On the barrel, Killebrew used a blue, fine tip marker to inscribe and sign: To David and Eric Good luck - Harmon Killebrew. The bat has some nicks and scratches, and the knob and barrel ends show wear, but overall, the item is in good condition. 3) Rocky Colavito was a home run slugger who was also known for his powerful throws from right field. He played in the Major Leagues from 1955-68, for seven teams, most memorably the Cleveland Indians (1955-59 & 1965-67). The offered 8x10" photograph is inscribed and signed by Colavito in neatly scripted, blue fountain ink. The Bronx-born fan favorite wrote, To Ronnie, With best wishes to a great fan. Sincerely, Rocky Colavito. The offerings make a great trio of 1950s-60s nostalgia items.
