    1930's-70's New York Yankees Photograph & Ephemera Collection, Some Signed, Lot of 30+. What we have here is a bit of a hodge podge of photographs and other flat ephemera celebrating the New York Yankees, but it will be a true delight for a Yankees fanatic or collector looking for buried treasure. Starting off it includes a seat number from the original Yankee Stadium sold in 1973 when it was rebuilt. It features the number "78D" and is accompanied by a brass plaque, a swatch off of an official Yankees uniform and the original sales envelope with story of the stadium.

    Next up are a couple of stadium postcards and some linen George Burke photographs, including Bob Muesel and a couple later reprints. A group of original news photographs includes stadium shots as well as Lefty Gomez, Red Ruffing and Lou Gehrig (dated 1935 on the verso). Three team photo premiums are in the lot: a 1937 8x10," a 1939 Sporting News 10.5x15," and a large 1956 original photograph measuring 12x20."

    A total of eighteen signed photos and clippings are the final pieces in the lot, and measure between 3x5" and 8x10." Some of the names include Hal Newhouser (HOF), Tommy Henrich, George Selkirk, Frank Crosetti, Virgil Trucks, Lefty Gomez (HOF), Eddie Wells, Marshall Bridges and more.

    Signatures range from 6/10 to 10/10, and item condition also runs the gamut from Fair (such as the premiums) to Near Mint on many of the postcards. An excellent assortment for a Yankees collector to have a lot of fun sorting through. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
