(LOT 93)
1927 New York Yankees Team Photo - PSA Type I Original Underwood & Underwood Photo – Measures 8" x 10" – Full PSA Type 1 LOA

The fabled 1927 Yankee season will forever be arguably considered "the greatest team in baseball history"! Led by Babe Ruth's 60 home runs and Lou Gehrig's MVP season, "Murderer's Row" (Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Meusel and Combs) paved the way for the Yankees winning an amazing 110 games against only 44 loses, literally "cake-walking" to the American League pennant behind the wizardry of HOF manager Miller Huggins. As an almost "anticlimax", the Yankees would eventually claim their second world championship by easily sweeping the Pittsburgh Pirates in an uncontested four games. As a fitting testament for that unparalleled season, presented here just happens to be a spectacular 8" x 10" PSA Type I photo of the 1927 New York Yankees, taken by the renowned Underwood & Underwood news service directly after they won the American League Pennant.

Emanating miraculous aesthetics, this 90-year old keepsake portrays world-class clarity and contrast, with no serious flaws compromising its "awe-inspiring" condition. All the iconic Yankees are present including Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Combs, Meusel, Hoyt, Pennock, Shawky, Huggins and so many more of the stars that comprised this immortal team (there exact positions in the photo are clearly indicated on the verso's caption). The flipside includes multiple Underwood & Underwood credit stamps as well as the aforementioned caption that describes how the Yankees superstar sluggers made them the "hardest hitting aggregation in the history of baseball." A truly monumental photo, it transcends the collector back to a definitive moment of time when Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and their remaining Yankee teammates turned the baseball world "upside-down" via their "Goliath-like" 1927 performance! – Full PSA Type 1 LOA
