I am selling a baseball card from my childhood collection. I am not sure what grade this card would receive, so I will let the scans speak for themselves. You will receive the card in the scan, 1961 #471 PHIL RIZZUTO 1950 AMERICAN LEAGUE MOST VALUABLE PLAYER NEW YORK YANKEES TOPPS BASEBALL CARD. Philip Francis "Phil" Rizzuto (September 25, 1917 – August 13, 2007), nicknamed "The Scooter", was an American Major League Baseball shortstop. He spent his entire 13-year baseball career with the New York Yankees (1941–1956), and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994. A popular figure on a team dynasty which captured 10 AL titles and seven World Championships in his 13 seasons, Rizzuto holds numerous World Series records for shortstops. His best statistical season was 1950, when he was named the American League's Most Valuable Player. Despite this offensive peak, Rizzuto was a classic "small ball" player, noted for his strong defense in the infield. The slick-fielding Rizzuto is also regarded as one of the best bunters in baseball history. When he retired, his 1,217 career double plays ranked second in major league history, trailing only Luke Appling's total of 1,424, and his .968 career fielding average trailed only Lou Boudreau's mark of .973 among AL shortstops. After his playing career, Rizzuto enjoyed a 40-year career as a radio and television sports announcer for the Yankees. His idiosyncratic style and unpredictable digressions charmed listeners, while his lively play-by-play brought a distinct energy to his broadcasts. He was well known for his trademark expression, "Holy Cow!". This card has been placed in a new Collector Safe polypropylene card sleeve (2 5/8" x 3 3/4") and then placed in a new Collector Protector (3" x 4"). Thank you for taking a look.
