Shortly after his death, Berra's looming legacy both on and off the field was aptly summarized on NPR with the observation that he won just as many MVP Awards as Mantle and is quoted nearly as often as Churchill! This touching tribute from the "Drink of Champions" captures instantly the beloved qualities that made the 10-time World Series champion a transcendent hero for the ages—and a potential candidate for the Presidential Medal of Freedom. The 16-3/4 x 22-1/4" display has a VG-EX appearance with a slightly off-cut perimeter, some light errant scribble marks away from Berra, and heavy mounting wear on the reverse, "You should always go to other people's funerals," Yogi memorably said. "Otherwise, they won't come to yours." Rest in peace, Lawrence Peter Berra. It won't be the same without you.
