1927 Original New York Yankees Team News Photo - PSA/DNA Type 1
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,666.25
Original news photo capturing the 1927 World Champion New York Yankees in a classic team pose. Twenty-nine members of the club are pictured here posing together in front of the grandstands at Yankee Stadium, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, manager Miller Huggins, Herb Pennock, Earle Combs, Wait Hoyt, Tony Lazzeri, Bob Meusel, Bob Shawkey, and Mark Koenig. An Underwood & Underwood credit stamp appears on the reverse, as does the original paper news caption, which simply identifies the club as "Yankee Team/Champions of 1927" and provides the names of each player pictured. A few additional pencil notations and stampings appear on the reverse, including a stamp reading "Valuable Original/Must Be Returned." Encapsulated by PSA/DNA and certified as an "Original Type 1 News Service Photograph." The 1927 New York Yankees, powered by Ruth, Gehrig, and the other members of baseball’s famed “Murderers' Row,” are still considered by many historians to be the greatest team ever assembled. Their World Series performance that year certainly affirmed that title, as the Yankees easily swept the Pirates in four straight games. The photo (8.5 x 6.5 inches) displays a few minor creases along the four white borders and is otherwise in Excellent to Mint condition. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,500+. SOLD FOR $2,666.25
