Description

    1928 Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Hack Wilson & Others Snapshot Photographs. This lot is obviously the treasure of one extremely lucky fan in attendance at an early 1928 spring training game between the New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs. Today, if a team were put together to rival the 1927 Yankees, the following year most of those players would be hermits, hiding out from clamoring fans the following season. Yet in this batch of nine snapshot photographs measuring 2-5/8 x 4-3/8," the fan was fortunate enough to get several big names to stop and pose for excellent images. The notes on the back in fountain pen help identify the time period by referring to 1927 statistics.

    One action shot of Babe Ruth shows him rounding second in a wide angle shot. Following that, however, are images of Ruth and Lou Gehrig, each posing with their lumber and very crisp shots. Also included from the Yanks is top pitcher Waite Hoyt. From the Cubs, Kiki Cuyler, Charlie Grimm, Woody English, Hack Wilson and Bill Veeck are represented in individual photos. Wilson and Veeck have been trimmed down slightly. Photos are in Excellent to EX/MT condition with few, if any, distractions anywhere.
