Yogi Berra, 1953.

A while ago, LIFE.com asked Hall of Famer and Yankee legend Yogi Berra to flip through some old photos and share a few of his fondest baseball memories. Our first question: Looking back, what was the most satisfying aspect of his entire storied career?

“Playing in fourteen World Series in seventeen seasons,” he said. “That wasn’t too bad.” Then, in perfectly understated Yogi fashion, he added, “Winning ten of those World Series wasn’t so bad, either.”

Above, in the captions to these classic baseball pictures, the one and only Yogi Berra offers his thoughts on some of his teammates and rivals through the years.
