This awesome framed piece features an official "Notice to Player of Release or Transfer" dated October 16, 1964, notifying Lawrence P. "Yogi" Berra that he has been unconditionally released as manager of the New York Yankees, which effectively ended his legendary Yankee career, which started in 1946 and ended on this fateful day in 1964 after he appeared in amazing 14 world series for them in 18 years! His unprecedented success with the team meant little to the heartless owners, as they fired him with this document just one day after leading his team as manager to a heartbreaking 7th game loss lost to the Saint Louis Cardinals in the 1964 World Series.
This incredible piece of baseball history is signed boldly in blue ink by Yankees General Manager Ralph G. Houk, and was obtained directly from the Yogi Berra Estate Collection. Comes complete with LOAs from Steiner Sports, the Yogi Berra Estate, and the world's number one authenticators PSA/DNA. Also includes a 1964 Topps signed Yogi Berra baseball card, encapsulated authentic by SCG, and JSA.
