White hit home runs from both sides of the plate in the same game five times and also switch-hit triples in a game on September 8, 1970 which nobody has ever done more than once in a season.

He had speed too, and stole 233 bases in his career. He was in double figures in steals every season except for his first and last years, and he stole a career-high 31 bases in 1976 at the age of 32. His fielding was just as steady as his other talents and in 1975 he fielded 1.000 the first Yankee ever to play an errorless season. League-leading performances offensively came in 1972 with 99 walks, 1973 with 639 at-bats, and 1976 with 104 runs. He achieved everyday status in 1968 and hit .267 with 17 HR, 20 steals, 89 runs, and 73 walks.

Military service interrupted his 1969 season when he made the All-Star team, but he had a career year in 1970 with personal highs of 22 HR, 109 runs, 94 RBIs, and a .296 batting average. He continued to provide the Yankees with consistent everyday play at the plate and in left field until an injury in 1978 slowed him. He helped the Yankees to their first pennant since 1964 in 1976, and to back-to-back World Championships in 1977-78. In the 1976 LCS he tied the ML mark for walks in a five-game series with 5, and his six doubles tied the ALCS lifetime record. His best postseason came in 1978 despite just having come off the DL he hit .313 in the LCS with a game-winning sixth-inning HR in the clincher and hit .333 with a HR and four RBIs in the World Series. Roy White hand signed this Official Major League baseball and added the inscription '1978 WS Champs'. A Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity is included.
