    Description

    1948 New York Yankees Team Signed Large Photograph. How's this for complete? Even the bat boys, the clubhouse guys (including the long-serving Pete Sheehy) and voice of the Yankees Mel Allen have joined the fun! Not a single pictured Yank has shirked his signing duties either, bringing the grand total of vintage autographs to thirty-seven. All your favorites are here: DiMaggio, Berra, Rizzuto, Harris, Henrich, Crosetti, Reynolds, Houk, Stirnweiss, Keller and more. George McQuinn is the only secretarial autograph. Signature quality is a consistent 8/10 throughout, and the 12x20" panoramic image exhibits mild wear only at the outermost edges, well clear of the image and signatures. Note the thick black armbands on the left sleeves for the recently departed Babe Ruth, dating the image to the final weeks of the '48 season. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
