1955 Bowman Yogi Berra

By Ryan Cracknell | Hobby Editor

Yogi Berra‘s life was filled with superlatives. In the field, he was one of the greatest catchers of all-time. As a player, he was a key part on ten World Series-winning teams. He added three more rings as a coach. And while it was Berra’s on-field success made him a baseball legend, it was his personality that made him an icon. And longevity too. With such a prolific career, vintage Yogi Berra cards cover five decades. In fact, his last cards as an active manager aren’t even vintage to most.

The Yogi Berra rookie card can be found in 1948 Bowman Baseball. Collectors can hunt down a couple of regional issues before that but this is his first widely available card. For the next 27 years the Yankees legend would appear in every major Bowman and Topps baseball release. After that, there were sporadic appearances in sets through 1985 as a coach and manager.

The hobby’s evolution has meant plenty more Yogi Berra cards in the last 20 years including autographs and memorabilia cards. For now, here’s a trip back to Yogi Berra, the player/manager/coach and a gallery of all his main Topps and Bowman cards.

Vintage Yogi Berra Cards Gallery

The following gallery highlights all of the main Bowman and Topps Yogi Berra cards (plus one from Donruss) released during his playing, managing and coaching career. While the vast majority of these are vintage, Berra’s career was so long that it might be a stretch to call a couple of his final managerial cards vintage. Nonetheless, we feel they’re important to include. If you’re looking to add vintage Yogi Berra cards to your collection (as well as modern ones), the Beckett Marketplace has a huge selection.
