Frank Crosetti TTM blast from the past

I had this post up yesterday, but blogger went crazy and someohow it got lost. Anyhow, in the late 1990's, I sent a TTM request to Frank Crosetti, who played 17 seasons with the Yanks during the '30s and '40s. He then coached them for another 20. All in all, "The Crow" was a part of 17 World Series Championship teams - eight as a player and nine more as a coach. That's a lot of rings. Topps, eat your heart out.

Mr. Crosetti was nice enough to sign this photo for me (he provided), and it's one of my favorite pieces of Yankee memorabilia that I own. After all, he did play with the Babe, Gehrig, DiMaggio and Berra. Not too shabby.
