1923 Large and almost panoramic photograph of the New York Yankees in uniform at the ballpark. Led by babe Ruth, the team would capture their third consecutive American League pennant, but this year, they won it all by vanquishing the Giants in the World Series. Issued by Pacific and Atlantic and stamped on the back with some newspaper articles as well, this is one of only a handful of examples from this important team known to exist. The photo is beautiful but has had some restoration done to the right edge (mostly the upper right corner) where it had some damage from news-room use. One of the most important New York Yankee team photographs ever offered and it looks great.
