(LOT 1724)
1927 New York Yankees Team Image - PSA Type IV George Burke Photo Measures 4" x 6"

The iconic 1927 Yankees are 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 to that unparalleled season, presented here just happens to be a spectacular 4" x 6" PSA Type IV photo of the 1927 New York Yankees, re-struck by George Burke from a duplicate negative/photo during the 1930s. Deemed a PSA Type IV photo because it was issued after a 2-year period from a duplicate negative, it is still some 90 years old and emanates brilliant aesthetics as well as revealing the original Burke issued rounded corners. No glaring flaws are evident and all of the iconic Yankees are present including Ruth, Gehrig, Lazzeri, Combs, Meusel, Hoyt, Pennock, Shawky, Huggins and so many more stars that comprised this immortal team. The flip side includes various captions listing all the players in the photo as well as the critical "GEO. BURKE" credit stamp. A truly significant offering, its legendary 1927 Yankees team image transports the collector back to a definitive moment in time when Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and their remaining Yankee teammates turned the baseball world upside-down with their "Goliath-like" 1927 performance!
