    1930's-40's New York Yankees Wire Photographs Lot of 7. Fine news images concentrate on the greatest names to wear the pinstripes. Lou Gehrig is the central focus of five of the images, appearing in uniform in one. Others find him with Charlie McCarthy (this photo is signed by Edgar Bergen in white ink) and unknown civilians (duplicates of one image). A great image of Joe DiMaggio is the sixth piece, facing off with a member of the Cincy Reds in the 1940 World Series. The final image is a late 1930's Yankees team shot featuring both Joe and Lou. Image size ranges from 6x8" to 8x10". Photos show minor edge wear and the occasional wrinkle, but all present nicely.

    I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the results of the auction. Friday night was a blast. I had a hard time sleeping I was so pumped up.
