These are nicely detailed and sepia-colored team photos, measuring about 12" x 17-1/2" and rendered on thick paper stock. A printed inscription with logo—in the bottom margin, along with lists of the respective squads' rosters—states "Exclusive 'New York Journal American' Photograph." The blank-backed items bear peripheral faults as well as single vertical compacting folds at center, projecting moderately circulated, overall EX appearance. Includes: 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers w/Hodges, Reese, J. Robinson and Vaughan; 1947 New York Giants w/Lombardi, Mize and T. Jackson; 1947 New York Yankees w/Berra, J. DiMaggio, Harris and Rizzuto. A small, typewritten note on N.Y.P.D. stationery (4" x 6") records that the items were delivered by a Journal American representative (for the benefit of the Commissioner's son) on Oct. 2, 1947.
