One of the most famous photographs of Hall of Famer Yogi Berra ever taken, this is a 1947 portrait photo in uniform. Looking incredibly young and nervous about the future, Berra could have never dreamed of the success he would have in the big leagues. A clean and bold original, one of the only ones we have ever seen, it was also used to make his rookie baseball card (1947 Bond Bread). Photo has some handling wear and creasing at the extreme edges but overall it is a highly presentable example of this important piece of baseball history.
