Photograph capturing thirty-nine members of the 1936 New York Yankees posing together at spring training. Certified as an original Type 1 photograph by PSA/DNA. Pictured here are team owner Jacob Ruppert, manager Joe McCarthy, Joe DiMaggio, Tony Lazzeri, Red Ruffing, Lefty Gomez, Bill Dickey, Frank Crosetti, and Red Rolfe. A "Thorne" credit stamp appears on the reverse (Thorne was the official spring training photographer of the New York Yankees at the time). 1936 was DiMaggio's rookie season with the Yankees, making this one of the earliest, if not the earliest New York Yankees team photo featuring the famed "Yankee Clipper." 1936 also marked the start of four consecutive World Championships for the Yankees. The photo (9.5 x 6.75 inches) displays a paperclip impression in the lower right, light toning in the upper right corner, three tack holes in the lower left corner, a number of light creases, and both paper residue and light staining on the reverse. Technically in Very Good condition, but Excellent in its overall appearance. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
