1923, 1927 New York Yankees Team Photos Pair with Ruth and Gehrig
Bronx Bomber collectors and photo collectors, rejoice! These exquisite Type I team shots have everything going for them. Let's start with 1923: 1) It's the first championship squad in franchise history; 2) It's Ruth's first Yankees title in his sole MVP season when he batted .393 and socked 3 World Series HRs; 3) It's Gehrig's true rookie season; 4) It hails from none other than the esteemed (and highly collectible) news service Underwood & Underwood; 5) It retains U&U's fully intact paper caption on the reverse. To amplify on the historical significance of 20-year-old Gehrig's presence, it's important to note that the soon-to-be "Iron Horse" debuted on June 15th and only played in 13 games so he almost never appears in any 1923 Yankees team photos. Indeed, we would go so far as to declare this the best '23 Yankees news-service photo that's ever hit the auction block. Originally published prior to the Fall Classic on September 25, 1923, the clairvoyant caption description reads, "Brand new, and excellent, group photo of Miller Huggins's famous baseball clan, the New York Yankees who have just clinched the American League Championship pennant for 1923, for the third consecutive season. In '21 and '22 they won the league championship; only to lose the world's title to the New York Giants-but this year is another story and the dope book gives the Yanks a little edge on the boys from the Polo Grounds. So, perhaps, this will be a picture of the 1923 World's Champions within a month or so." Turning to '27, they are of course, quite simply, the best there ever was or ever will be. No team but no team can top the '27 Yankees for a more fabled legacy in baseball history. Ruth's record-breaking 60 HRs, Gehrig's MVP, the entire "Murderers' Row" lineup, the World Series sweep of the Pirates, the famed Bustin' Babes/Larrupin' Lous barnstorming tour that followed-all this and so much more has elevated these mere mortals to god-like mythic status. Here, the Iron Horse stands first in line, the Bambino looms two slots away, "Poosh 'Em Up Tony" Lazzeri grins fifth from the right, and Miller "Mighty Mite" Huggins sits front and center in the second row. The timing was mid-September after the Bombers captured their 5th pennant in 7 years, as noted on the reverse paper caption: "FIRST GROUP PHOTO OF NEW YORK YANKEES, CHAMPIONS OF THE AMERICAN LEAGUE FOR 1927." Fotograms, the news service behind this photo, was a prominent issuer in the 1910s-1920s that specialized in Yankees subject matter. (In fact, a Fotograms 1927 shot of Ruth and Gehrig appears in Fogel, Oser and Yee's reference book A Portrait of Baseball Photography.) Both team photos measure 8" x 10", feature superb image quality, and exhibit typical newsroom handling wear throughout such as creasing, crazing, surface rippling and small edge tears. Encapsulated as Type I by PSA/DNA. Goldin Auction
1941 50th Anniversary of the Hot Dog Testimonial Proclamation Signed
Among the most influential people in the history of baseball British born food concessionaire Harry M. Stevens, designed and sold baseball’s first scorecards., the template of which is still employed today and is the man responsible for turning ballpark food into a multi-million dollar industry. Although it has never been conclusively proven he is also credited with having created baseball’s longest standing culinary partner; the Hot Dog. Appropriately enough Babe Ruth, who knew a thing or two about hot dogs, headed a list a baseball dignitaries in attendance at the Golden Jubilee Testimonial Dinner to the Stevens Boys (Harry and his brothers: Frank, Joe and Bill) on the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Hot Dog by the New York Baseball Writers at the Hotel Commodore in New York City on January 14, 1941.

Ernie Banks 36"x26" Oil On Canvas Painting by Ron Stark
Our National Pastime lost one of its greatest ambassadors in January with the unfortunate passing of Mr. Cub just a week shy of his 84th birthday. So it seems perfectly fitting that this year's National Sports Collectors Convention should be held in none other than Banks' beloved Windy City, just an "L" ride away from the Friendly Confines. Ernie had attended the National multiple times in the past—with true-blue fans coming out in droves to bask in their hero's sunshine—and he was slated to return for an encore autograph session this time around. What we all wouldn't give now to once again see that million-dollar smile, those twinkling eyes, to hear Mr. Cub's cheery voice deliver his carpe-diem message to the world: "It's a beautiful day for a ballgame...Let's play two!" With this reverent, breathtakingly realistic portrait, Ron Stark has brought Banks back to life in his 1960s glory. The effervescent joy, the deep wisdom, the physical prowess, the competitive drive, the big-hearted humanity—all of these qualities burned into our collective memory bank are writ large in Stark's haunting homage. Rendered in a Baroque style reminiscent of Caravaggio, the 36" x 26" work invokes a slice of Cubs heaven by bathing Banks in an angelic glow against a dramatic backdrop of billowing clouds. For the Florida-based Stark, this piece has extra-special personal resonance because shortly after completing it, Ron took his 18-year-old son—a die-hard Cubs fan—on a pilgrimage to the holy shrine of Wrigley as a high-school graduation present. Ernie Banks would no doubt be delighted. For as he liked to tell folks, "Life is a song. Sing it. Life is a game. Play it. Life is a challenge. Meet it. Life is a dream. Realize it." Bio: Son of legendary illustrator/artist Bruce Stark, Ron is one of the most popular and respected sports artists today. For nearly 25 years, Ron has perfected his craft while paying homage to history’s finest athletic icons. Stark’s work has been showcased at galleries and museums (including a special commission for the Ted Williams Museum), at Camden Yards, on Topps cards, and on the covers of books and magazines. He often paints directly for his loyal clientele and thus seldom surfaces at auction. Goldin Auction
1933 Goudey #106 Napoleon Lajoie - PSA NM 7
Graded NM 7 by PSA. Hall of Famer, and a notably rare "Short Print" entry. Among a total of just 82 examples holdered by PSA, a mere 17 copies of this storied collectible have exceeded the offered piece's NM 7 assessment. At the dawn of the gum card's glorious "Golden Age" in 1933 and continuing to the present day, confectioners have sought to establish a covenant with the majority of their clients. Simply, this was a matter of faith: collectors would buy pack after pack of a specific product, the idea being to obtain a full set of the cards associated with those packs. At least one of each number, in other words. Duplicates were part of the game, and thus expected, but willful omissions were not. It was a dramatic breach of trust, then, that saw Goudey consumers holding up their end with vigorous gum-buying, while the number of sets completed through this activity remained stuck at precisely zero. Soon, it was determined that absolutely no one could find card number 106 in what appeared to be a 240-piece sequence. Just a few, more assertive buyers complained directly to the Massachusetts-based manufacturer, and hobby lore documents that these individuals were rewarded with apologetic letters from Goudey ... with card #106 enclosed. (Later, of course, perfidious "skip-numbering" schemes were employed on a grander scale - à la 1948 Leaf - but 1933's Depression Era folks wouldn't tolerate it.) In the collectibles industry of modern times, there remain far too few 1933 Goudey #106's to complete even a fraction of the aspiring sets. Factoring condition into the equation along with scarcity, a splendid, barely circulated example of this treasure - as illustrated here - projects an absolutely compelling allure. This exceedingly attractive and famously elusive piece boasts exceptional color quality and the merest traces of careful, admiring handling. The card's surfaces - front and back - are bright and enticing, and its corners are confidently well-shaped. More than eighty years after being dropped into an envelope by a contrite Goudey executive, the offered specimen remains perfectly equipped to finish a high-quality near set that's been waiting to welcome it. Here is one of the hobby's most prestigious and sought-after items, in splendid Near Mint condition. Goldin Auction
