    1930's-1970's Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle & Others Vintage Press Photographs Lot of 16. This large assortment of original press photographs and wire photographs spans several decades of baseball and features Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth, Rogers Hornsby and others. An undated photo of Babe Ruth signing a photo of himself for Hank Greenberg leads the lot. A second Ruth image is from 1948, showing Ruth lying in state in Yankee Stadium for public viewing. A 1937 photo of Rogers Hornsby and Jim Bottomley is the primary non-Yankee image in the lot, as well as a 1971 Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Frazier wire photo.

    Five different press photos of Joe DiMaggio range from 1938 to 1962 and includes one of Joe and his son mourning at Marilyn Monroe's funeral. Six photos of Mickey Mantle are in the lot, including a rookie year wire photo with DiMaggio from 1951. One Mantle photo, in a Joplin uniform, is likely a later printing, as is a 1920 Commerce High School team photo with Lou Gehrig.
