Perfect Game Battery Mates Final Game at Yankee Stadium Autographed Photo
- Includes Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity
In 1956 NY Yankee Don Larsen became the first major league pitcher
to throw a perfect game in the World Series. In Game Five versus
the Brooklyn Dodgers it took Larsen only 97 pitches to complete the
game. Often overlooked Yogi Berra had a very important role in the
perfect game because he called the pitches that where thrown. Yogi
Berra was so overcome with excitement that he jumped into Don
Larsen's arms after the final out. David Wells had two tenures as a
pitcher with the New York Yankees spanning 1997-1998 and 2002-2003.
Wells won the World Series with the Bombers in 1998 and earlier
that same year on May 17 in a game against the Minnesota Twins he
threw the first perfect game by a Yankees pitcher since Don Larsen
in the 1956 World Series. David Cone joined the elite club of Major
League pitchers to throw a perfect game. On July 18 1999 against
the Montreal Expos with Don Larsen and Yogi Berra in attendance
David Cone becomes only the 17th pitcher to throw a perfect game.
He struck out 10 and it took him only 88 pitches to complete the
game. The pitchers and catchers of the only 3 perfect games in
Yankees history are all together on this one piece: Joe Girardi and
David Cone 'PG 7-18-99.' Jorge Posada and David Wells "PG 5-17-98",
and Yogi Berra and Don Larsen "PG 10-8-56" have each hand signed
this 16 in. x 20 in. photograph of them all at the mound during the
pre-game ceremonies before the Final Game at Yankee Stadium on
September 21, 2008. This item comes complete with a Steiner Sports
certificate of authenticity.
