Absolutely stunning original team photo of the 1927 New York Yankees: the greatest team of all time. This is as good as it gets for a 1927 Yankees team photograph! The crystal-clear photo captures thirty-one team members posing in their home pinstripes prior to a game at Yankee Stadium, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Miller Huggins, Tony Lazzeri, Herb Pennock, and Wait Hoyt. The photographer's credit stamp and the year, "Cosmo Foto N.Y. - 1927," appear in the lower right corner. This is an ideal 1927 Yankees team display photograph. It has a flawless photographic quality and is in essentially perfect condition. The photo displays razor-sharp clarity, perfect contrast, and is in extraordinary Near Mint condition, making it one the finest 1927 New York Yankees team photos we have ever seen. This photo, which measures 9 x 5 inches, was also produced by Cosmo Photo Studios in a much larger size. When one considers the fact that large-format panoramic New York Yankees team photos from the 1920s are not only rare, but depending on size and quality, can sell for tens of thousands of dollars, a rarely offered smaller photo such as this, which is ideal for display but far more reasonably valued (especially a dated Cosmo Foto Studios example of unrivaled quality and aesthetic appeal), is particularly desirable and might represent the best value for a classic original 1927 Yankees display photograph. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,350
