Custom framed display measures 11.5" x 19.5" in size. Features a 1965 Topps #470 baseball card that has been hand-signed by Yogi Berra (D. 2015, New York Mets, HOF). The display also features an MLB player release document that has been hand-signed by George Weiss (D. 1971).

After a legendary career with the New York Yankees that saw him appear in 14 World Series in 18 years, Yogi Berra was fired one day after a heartbreaking loss in the seventh game of the 1964 World Series. A few months later, he was resurrected with the crosstown rival New York Mets where he mustered up two hits in last nine at-bats before calling it a career as a player on May 11, 1965 when he announced his retirement as a player to become a full-time coach for the Mets.

This one-of-a-kind piece of baseball history issued by the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club, Inc (METS) features a "Notice to Player of Release or Transfer" dated May 17, 1965 unconditionally releasing Berra as a player of the New York Mets. Signed in black ink by Mets Team President George Weiss and includes a 1965 Topps baseball card signed by Yogi Berra in blue ink.

The lot / autograph(s) includes an official PSA/DNA hologram and matching LOA as well as encapsulated by PSA/DNA for authenticity purposes.
