While Mickey Mantle was the most talked about of all Yankees, the golden boy following in the steps of Ruth and DiMaggio, it was Berra who did the heavy lifting and true clutch hitting for the Bronx Bombers. Berra captured the A.L. MVP in 1951, 1954 and 1955 and played on pennant winners in 10 of his first 12 seasons in pinstripes. Behind the plate, Berra was an adept handler of pitchers and student of opposing hitters. With the bat, he was an assassin, known for driving in runs when they counted most and coming up with big hits in big moments.

This 1956 Berra defies its age and delivers high marks at every point on the grading scale. The colors on this remarkable card remain explosive, bright and gleaming. The corners are dangerously sharp. And the card’s borders are icy white. Even the reverse looks as though human hands never touched its surface. From our perspective, it seems as though this Berra exited the press, cleared the cutter and was sealed in its original package, never again to see the light of day until it hit the grading station at PSA.
