It is hard to image the mighty Yankees of the late 1920's needed a kick in the pants, but after the death of Miller Huggins and the resurgence of the Philadelphia Athletics, the bombers were down! At the end of the 1930 season, Joe McCarthy was lured from the Cubs to turn the team around and all he did over the next 13 years was win SEVEN World Series Titles! This is an important image from January 1931 well before he ever took the field for the Yankees showing McCarthy posing for photographers with the black and white jersey of New York for the first time ever! A killer image in pretty nice shape, this is one of the greatest images of McCarthy all things considered that we have ever offered! Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
