    1930's-70's Charles "Red" Ruffing Photographs Lot of 15. From the personal collection of New York Yankee pitching great "Red" Ruffing comes this lot of fifteen photographs. About half appear to be original period photographs while the other half are later reprints. One photo includes Babe Ruth in a candid shot pretending to hit Ruffing over the head with a club. "Boston Police Dept." has been written on the photo, along with names of those pictured. Another image is marked on the margin as "1925 Red Sox" and has an arrow pointing to Ruffing. A 9x14" image shows Ruffing with his wife holding an "All-American" pillow.

    Three of the images are news photographs that have been matted with captions: 1937 Yankees victory dinner (with Gehrig), 1939 Yankees team (with Gehrig, DiMaggio, Dickey) and 1942 A.L. All-Star pitchers. Two of the reprints feature Ruffing with Gehrig and DiMaggio. Photos are approximately 8x10" unless otherwise indicated. Letter of provenance from the Ruffing family.
