According to Yogi Berra, baseball “is ninety percent mental, and the other half is physical.” While Berra might not be a mathematical scholar, he was an extremely charismatic baseball player who was always willing to speak his mind, which is just one reason why he is adored today by fans and collectors alike.

Though Berra liked to say that, “half the lies they tell about me aren’t true,” there is no questioning that Berra has been liberal about signing autographs, and thus they are not particularly valuable. They are, however, staples for collectors of New York Yankees memorabilia. His baseball cards, in contrast, are not as easy to come by.

His wit aside, Berra was also a star on the field. He rarely endured slumps, and if you asked him about a period of poor hitting, he would tell you so: “Slump? I ain’t in no slump… I just ain’t hitting.” Berra won ten World Series championships as a player (plus three more as a coach), went to 18 All-Star games, and won three Most Valuable Player (MVP) awards. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.
