    1923 New York Yankees Team News Photograph. Here it is, the first of twenty-seven World Championship New York Yankees teams! Spectacular photo snapped when the paint was still wet on the glorious new baseball palace in the Bronx appeared in newspapers under the headline "American League Pennant Winners," as the clipping affixed to verso indicates. A date stamp reads "Sep 23, 1923." The Babe is fittingly placed at dead center in the back row, with his manager Miller Huggins and his mascot Eddie Bennett directly in front of him. The image is slightly trimmed to dimensions of 7.75x9.25" and bears the hand-rendered editorial enhancements apparent in the newsprint version on verso. An upper right corner crease remains clear of the subjects, and a simple framing job would make this a real beauty of a display.
