Description1926 New York Yankees Original Team Photograph with 1927 McKibbin Blotter. From the Henry Yee Collection. This photo is the plate example for Cosmo-Sileo Associates as found in the book "A Portrait of Baseball Photography" by Fogel, Oser and Yee. It takes mere seconds to realize what an amazing photo this is. The uncompromising quality is almost beyond comparison. The fabled 1927 season was one year away when this image was taken in 1926 showcasing what is essentially the same historic squad. Each player is dressed in their famous pinstripes and leather jackets.
Advanced baseball photography hobbyists will recognize the image was taken in Yankee Stadium - "The House That Ruth Built" - which opened just three seasons prior. The American League Champs ended the season with a 91-63-1 record but would lose to the Cardinals in the historic 7-game World Series. Babe Ruth played the rare role of the goat that October, recording the final out of the World Series as he was caught in an ill-advised attempt to steal second base.
Stamping on verso credits "Cosmo-Sileo Associates." There is light creasing to the two left corners and surface crackelature in areas which is common with thin and fragile photo paper. This affects the image only minimally. Dimensions are 8x10". Also included is a great ink blotter for McKibbin Leather Sport Jackets. The 9x4" blotter pictures the very same image as the offered photo! A fantastic companion piece that would be the ideal when matting and framing.
