1955 Topps – Phil Rizzuto Card #189 & Signed Photo 11×14 Yankees – COAGo Back
Nicknamed “The Scooter”, Phil Rizzuto spent his entire 13-year baseball career with the New York Yankees (1941–1956), and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994. A popular figure on a team dynasty that captured 10 AL titles and seven World Championships in his 13 seasons, Rizzuto holds numerous World Series records for shortstops. His best statistical season was 1950, when he was named the American League’s Most Valuable Player. Despite this offensive peak, Rizzuto was a classic “small ball” player, noted for his strong defense in the infield. The slick-fielding Rizzuto is also regarded as one of the best bunters in baseball history. When he retired, his 1,217 career double plays ranked second in major league history, trailing only Luke Appling’s total of 1,424, and his .968 career fielding average trailed only Lou Boudreau’s mark of .973 among AL shortstops.
Presented are two Phil Rizzuto related items. Including a 1955 Topps – Phil Rizzuto Card #189 (exhibits creasing/surface wear) and an autographed 11×14 photo. Rizzuto signed the photo in the style of an exhibit card in black felt tip (“7-8”).
