Signed Berra Photo Presented to Prez

He could have mailed it…but it’s unlikely the specially autographed photo of Yogi Berra and Jackie Robinson would have made it into he hands of President Obama.

Berra signed photo to President ObamaYou might remember our August 20 story about the New Jersey man’s quest to turn the photo over.

Last week, Murro got his chance when the Obamas vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard.  Positioning himself at the front of a crowd gathered outside a local restaurant, Murro was able to get a few seconds of the chief executive’s attention and present him with the picture signed by Yogi– “Dear Mr. President, He Was Out!”

Here’s a little more about the encounter, the history of the photo and a few more details.

The video of the photo being handed over is below.
