Happy Birthday Yogi

"Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical."
Yogi Berra, the man of a million quips, turns 90 today. The man is undeniably one of the best players to ever line up behind the plate and a Yankee legend to boot. After serving during WWII as a gunners mate he signed with the New York Yankees and never looked back. Playing 19 seasons (18 w/ Yankees & 1 w/ Mets) he played in 18 All-Star games, won 10 World Series Titles and was named AL MVP three times. Counting his time as a player, manager and coach for the Yankees, Mets and Astros and he made it to 21 World Series winning 13 times and since has had his number retired by the Yankees and was inducted in to the Hall of Fame in 1972.
"Congratulations. I knew the record would stand until it was broken."

 Having played as long as he did and being a Yankee legend there are so many options for collecting his cards with his 1948 Bowman running $100+. A decent Yogi autograph can be picked up for $30-50 and relics for under $25.
"It ain't over till it's over."
