Description

    1929 New York Yankees Photographic Snapshots Lot of 23 from Bill Dickey Estate. The Hall of Fame catcher for the New York Yankees was just a star-struck rookie when he went about snapping photos of his teammates during pre-game warm-ups in the early years of the original Yankee Stadium. While the mighty Babe Ruth is absent from the cast of characters, all the other notables are present, each identified in vintage ink. Pictured are Gehrig, Lazzeri, Hoyt, Durocher, Dickey himself (the only photo lacking a handwritten identifier), Pipgras, Shawkey, Zachary, Meusel, Koenig, Durst, Paschal and even the bat boy and Ruth's lucky charm Eddie Bennett. Each exhibits the remnants of scrapbook removal on verso, but the 2.75x4.5" photos suffer no other flaws worth noting. Photos are sharply focused and wonderfully evocative, offering a player's eye view into baseball's Golden Age.
