Item Description
Between 4.25x6.5" and 5x7" original glossies w/"Spooner & Wells Photographers" ink stamped on back w/NYC address and players name w/team & year in pencil on most. Most show the players in practice or in-game situations while others show the fields, stadium, & spectators. Includes: "Wee" Willie Keeler (HOF outfielder famous for the quote "Hit 'em where they ain't" and the original holder of the consecutive game hit streak later broken by Joe Dimaggio) preparing for a game. Several w/Hal Chase, whose big league career lasted from 1905 to 1919, and was the most notoriously corrupt player in baseball history. He was also, according to many of those who saw him play, the greatest defensive first baseman ever but his tainted legacy has kept him out of the Hall Of Fame. Originally one of the AL's eight charter franchises, the club was founded in Baltimore in 1901 as the Baltimore Orioles. The team moved to New York City in 1903 and became the New York Highlanders and took the "Yankees" as their official name in 1913. Keeler photo has pair of .5" tears on left and bottom margins. Lt. handling creases here and there, lt. age curling, a few margins are trimmed a bit. Overall Fine/VF. A vast collection perfect for the New York Yankee collector or any fan of baseball history.
