Collectors of news service photos with this kind of age are aware that they don't often come in neat 8" x 10" sizes and are frequently cut in unusual ways and bear a multitude of editing marks on either side and are printed on a wide variety of types of paper and stock. The subjects, however, are always very interesting and often with infrequently-seen players or long-since-demolished facilities featured. This is a very large lot of pre-war images of all kinds and a bunch of Hall of Famers. 1910s: Clarke Griffith, Ernie Shore (two), Walter Holke, August Herrmann, Hobe Ferris, Larry Gilbert, Charles Deal, Wally Schang, Ed Reulbach, and Joe Harris. 1920s: Tom Zachary, William Cunningham, Joe Sewell, Freddie Lindstrom, Buck Herzog, Rosy Ryan, George Kelly, Arte Mehl, Travis Jackson, Ryan, Reulbach, Adolfo Luque, Heinie Wagner, Sam Jones, Dazzy Vance, Rabbit Maranville, Roger Peckinpaugh, 1928 Boston Braves lineup with Cooney, Hearn, Brandt, Dunlap, 1927 Braves Rudolph / Bancroft, John McGraw / Hughie Critz, another McGraw, John McGraw / John Slattery, Frank Hogan Boston Braves ceremony, and 1927 Hogan / Gibson / Taylor Boston Braves. 1930s-1940s: Arndt Jorgens, Ted Williams, Hack Wilson (Charles Conlon photo), William Hargrave, John McGraw, Adolfo Luque (two), Lefty O'Doul, Goose Goslin, Luque, Mickey Cochrane, Ethan Allen, Jim Bottomley, Fred Leach, Ernie Lombardi, Bottomley, Walter Betts, three small Babe Ruth from 1942 Yankee Stadium fete (in uniform, at bat), Pepper Martin, Dizzy Dean, Heinie Wagner, Lesley Mallon, Joe Sewell, Danny MacFayden, Bill Terry, Charley Root, Lefty Grove, Smoky Joe Wood, Johnny Broaca, 1943 NY Yankees lineup with Weatherly, Etten, Johnson, Stirnweis, 1943 Boston Braves "Big Three" with West, Lombardi, Ross, Connie Ryan / Ernie Lombardi / Hugh Polard, 1931 Willie Kamm / Roger Peckinpaugh, 1936 NY Giants World Series lineup with CHiozza, Ripple, Moore, Berger, Lieber, 1937 Bill Terry / Burleigh Grimes, 1934 Braves with William McKechnie, Hank Gowdy, 1930 Heinie Wagner (with terrific 1930 Red Sox pilgrim patch), and 1938 Vince DiMaggio / Gene Moore / Roy Johnson.
