Illustration and text by Andy Broome | Beckett Media Contributor
Bill Gallo, long time sports cartoonist for the New York Daily News passed away yesterday at the age of 88.
Gallo inked many sports icons over his long career and gave fans characters such as Basement Bertha, Yuchie and “General Von Steingrabber,” a stab at Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.
Yesterday, the New York Daily News released a video of Yankee fans recounting Gallo’s creative contributions to the team and to the sports world.
