Thought i would share a yogi berra story with you guys.

Just after i was born, my uncle say Yogi in the supermarket, and he approached him and asked for an auto to give to his baby nephew. Yogi said the charge was 60 dollers.

I see with the free auto you got, he has lightened up

Yogi through his foundation/museum now charges $100. His son Dale (who used to be a major leaguer too) runs it. You won't get a free sig there.

But I've written Yogi at his house 4-5 times, and have gotten a free one every time.

I would be weary of that. If he dosen't sign for free from his foundation why would he turn around and sign for free at home? A lot of ballplayers don't appreciate getting autograph requests at home.

If you know Dale, you know the answer to your question. My Yogi's passed PSA/DNA inspection as well.

There are a couple big time Yogi collectors on another board. A while ago I inquired if the TTMs were real. This was their response (with name removed):

<< 10 years ago he signed TTM for $10 a card. 2012 I think he is now charging $100.

I called the museum in 2001, and asked if they give a quanity discount. They said "no". I told them I had a couple 1985 Topps Father Son cards, and if I could get Dale to sign them also. The gentleman said "I'd love to"

That's the best Dale Berra Story I have.

Yup, Dale handles all of that. And let me tell you, he can be a real pr*ck about it too. I can understand him protecting his father but he is really rude and condescending a lot of the times. I dont think Yogi even knows how much is charged for his signature. Seems like overnight it was changed from 50 to 100.

Yogi probably sees $0. Funny thing is I'd pay $50 all dAy for his auto probably buy 10 of them but I won't pay $100 once ha ha
