1938 World Champions New York Yankees Large-Format Team Photo - Gehrig's Final Full Season!
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $533
Original, large-format photograph (13 x 10 inches) capturing the 1938 World Champion New York Yankees in a traditional team pose. Twenty-nine team members are pictured, including manager Joe McCarthy, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Lefty Gomez, Bill Dickey, Joe Gordon, Tommy Henrich, Frank Crosetti, Red Ruffing, and Red Rolfe. Although the photo is undated, the year can be pinpointed to 1938 due to the New York World's Fair patch displayed on the left sleeve of each jersey (the patch was only worn by the club in 1938). The Yankees captured their third consecutive World Championship in 1938, which also marked the final full season for legendary Yankees captain Lou Gehrig. The photo, which presents with exceptional clarity, has a few very light creases (mainly along the top border; only visible when viewed at certain angles) and is otherwise in Excellent to Mint condition. Matted and framed to total dimensions of 19.5 x 16.25 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $533
