Hall of Fame Signed Baseball - Bill Dickey
Bill Dickey (b. 1907 - d. 1993) played in the majors from 1928 to 1943 and 1946, all for the New York Yankees. Dickey had 1,969 hits, 202 home runs and a .313 batting average. He was a 11-time All Star and finished as high as 2nd in the AL MVP voting in 1938 (he finished second to Jimmie Foxx).
Dickey won the World Series with the Yankees 7 times (1932, 1936 through 1939, 1941 and 1943). He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1954 when he received 80.2% of the vote (his 10th ballot). He has his uniform number (#8) retired by the Yankees, which was the same number worn by Yogi Berra, and his #8 is also retired.
