Description:
1927 New York Yankees Team Signed Photograph. Of the twenty-seven pinstriped editions to deliver World Championship glory to the fans in the Bronx, this Golden Age club stands in baseball lore as the finest of the lot. In fact, this club is the answer most commonly given by baseball experts and historians when pressed to name the greatest baseball team of all time, bar none. When one considers the roster made available to Hall of Fame manager Miller Huggins, the reasoning behind this wide consensus becomes clear. The all but supernatural slugging powers of Home Run King Babe Ruth and season MVP Lou Gehrig fed an unprecedented offensive onslaught that saw the Yanks almost quadruple the American League team long ball average. Earle Combs topped the League in both singles and triples. Bob Meusel and Tony Lazzeri each reached triple-digits in the RBI column. So deadly were the bats that stacked the Yankee line-up that sportswriters referred to the club with the rather sinister moniker "Murderer's Row."

Here we present one of the finest artifacts in the hobby to document that glorious Golden Age club, an exceedingly rare team photo autographed by the full roster of thirty men pictured, right down to veteran trainer Albert "Doc" Woods and the Babe's lucky charm, hunchbacked batboy Eddie Bennett. The bulging inventory of Hall of Famers is represented as follows: Babe Ruth (6/10), Lou Gehrig (2/10), Earle Combs (9/10), Waite Hoyt (5/10), Tony Lazzeri (9/10), Herb Pennock (6/10), Miller Huggins (1.5/10). Other notables: Urban Shocker (3/10), Mark Koenig (8/10), Bob Meusel (9/10), George Pipgras (7/10), Pat Collins (4/10). The rest are equally spread across the full spectrum, from very light to bold as the date of application.

The photograph itself measures 8x10" in size and presents very well, with some rippling and a few scattered creases causing little distraction. Certainly one must forgive the occasional condition flaw in light of the tremendous rarity and desirability. The definitive autographed artifact of Golden Age baseball. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Full LOA from James Spence Authentication.
