1927 New York Yankees Team Photograph PSA/DNA Type 1
As legendary teams go, the 1927 Yankees seemed to have had it all: the two greatest players in the game at the time in Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig, a lineup which featured no less than five .300 hitters, the best pitching staff in baseball, and the perfect finale to any team's season—a four game sweep of their opponent in the World Series. Offered is an outstanding photo of that memorable team, produced as a news service photo by Underwood & Underwood and taken shortly after winning the 1927 World Series. The photo's caption label on the reverse is entitled, "YANKEES TEAM, CHAMPIONS OF 1927." The Underwood & Underwood stamp, clearly legible, is just below the caption. The major names on the team are, of course, Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Combs, Hoyt, Huggins and Pennock, all of whom are included here. But even if the photo carried no reference to date, this photo's portraits of Joe Giard (misspelled Gerard in the key) and batting practice pitcher Don Miller—both only with the organization for that one season—would be enough to correctly identify the piece. Measuring 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" in size, this black and white photo is easily the best conditioned of its kind we have ever encountered, with boldness and clarity second to none. This photograph has been authenticated by PSA/DNA as a TYPE 1, period 1st generation exemplar and had been encapsulated in PSA's tamper proof and archival safe photograph holder (photograph certification number 1P01234). These crystal clear holders are semi-rigid, yet light weight and thin enough to be easily matted and framed.
