(LOT 83)
1928 Yankee Outfielders incl. Babe Ruth, Earle Combs & Bob Meusel PSA Type I Original Underwood & Underwood Photo – Measures 8" x 10" – Full PSA Type 1 LOA

This classic Underwood & Underwood c.1927 – 1929 image portrays five of the New York Yankee outfielders during the height of their American league dominance including the incomparable George Herman Ruth! Donning their classic "Road" Yankee uniforms, from left to right the players include: Cedric Durst, Earle Combs, Ben Paschal, Babe Ruth and Bob Meusel, with the image depicting breathtaking clarity and contrast as well as relatively clean surfaces. The verso reveals the renowned Underwood & Underwood credit stamp and critical caption listing the players and mentioning that the Yankees are preparing for their World Series match against the St. Louis Cardinals at Yankee Stadium.

Although the caption does not list the year, we can easily date the image to 1928 (as opposed to 1926 vs. St. Louis) since both Cedric and Paschal were NOT Yankees for the 1926 season, with both players joining the New York club in 1927. The Yankees would exact revenge on their N.L. rivals in the 1927 Fall Classic, sweeping the Redbirds in four games as the "Sultan of Swat" clobbered three home runs in the clinching game four contest. A steadfast reminder of how the immortal "Murderer's Row" wreaked havoc on American League hurlers in the mid to late 1920's, it includes three of the legendary sluggers that composed that mighty tandem including the iconic "Bambino" who unquestionably stands as baseball's greatest all-time player! – Full PSA Type I LOA
