Contract, signed “Lawrence Peter Berra,” four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 11, March 1, 1949. American League uniform player's contract in which Yogi Berra agrees to render "skilled services as a baseball player during the year 1949" for the New York Yankees, for a salary of $14,000. Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Yogi Berra, American League President William Harridge, and New York Yankees Vice President George Weiss. In fine condition. The 23-year-old Berra had become a mainstay in the Yankees lineup and behind the plate in 1948, and looked to continue in his productive starting role in 1949. He hit .277, walloped 20 homers, and made his second All-Star team, in addition to leading the Bronx Bombers to their first of five consecutive World Series titles between 1949 and 1953. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA.
