    1920's Muddy Ruel "Action" Wire Photographs Lot of 5 from the Herold "Muddy" Ruel Collection. Fantastic selection of five shots picture this supremely talented catcher nailing runners at the plate. Note how perfectly he blocks the runners' paths! Best is a two-photo montage from a Yankees/Giants World Series that has the sliding runner missing the plate entirely as Ruel applies the tag. Size ranges from 5x7" to 8x10". Captions are removed, but news service stamping is present on some. Some photos are trimmed for editing, otherwise EX.
