    1937 New York Yankees Team Signed Photograph. The Bronx Bombers earned their nickname well this World Championship season, as the young DiMaggio clubbed a career and League-best forty-six home runs, topping even the great Gehrig, whose thirty-seven long balls placed him firmly in the top ten as well. Each legendary Hall of Famer has signed his image on this simply outstanding photograph paying homage to the team that posted the second of four consecutive Fall Classic victories. Joining this hard-slugging trio are the autographs of twenty-five fellow Yanks, representing every man pictured except Colonel Ruppert, the trainer Doc Painter, the team mascot, and Monte Pearson, the right-handed pitcher from whose estate the photograph derives. Some of these noteworthy names include Crosetti, Henrich, Ruffing, Gomez, McCarthy, Combs and Lazzeri, all contrasting beautifully against the pinstriped jerseys they wear so proudly. As was typical of the time, several signatures are of the clubhouse variety (McCarthy, Combs, Gomez, Dickey, and Lazzeri), but the rest were signed by the athletes themselves Remarkably, every last signature rates at least a solid 6/10, with the average falling closer to 7/10 or 8/10, and the photograph itself is entirely free of even the hint of a crease, stain or other visible ailment. The photo measures 7.5x9.5", and is mounted on a foamcore backing measuring approximately 11x14". The exceptional talent present, and the quality of the autographs and photograph themselves, place this remarkable piece near the pinnacle of Yankee team signed pieces from the decade. Deserving of a home in only the finest of collections. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
