Robin Roberts Signed Photo 8×10 Yankees “HOF ’76” – COA JSAGo Back
Robin Roberts made his major league debut on June 18, 1948, and in 1950 he led his Phillies—whose overall youth earned them the nickname the Whiz Kids—to their first National League pennant in 35 years. Roberts started three games in the last five days of the season, defeating the heavily favored Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field, in a pennant-deciding, season-ending, 10-inning game.
After the 1961 season, Roberts was sold to the New York Yankees, who acquired the slumping pitcher from the Phillies for slightly more than the $20,000 league waiver price. On February 6, 1962, the Phillies announced that Roberts’s uniform number 36 would be retired by the team on March 21, 1962, when the Yankees would visit Clearwater to play the Phillies in a spring training game.
It was the first uniform number to be retired by the organization. Roberts started for the Yankees in the spring game, gave up four runs in three innings, and was the winning pitcher in the Yankees’ 13–10 victory. He was released by the Yankees in May 1962 without having appeared in a regular-season game for the Yankees.
Presented is an 8×10 color photo autographed by Robin Roberts. He signed the photo in black felt tip (“9”) with the inscription, “HOF ’76”.
