Make no mistake: This is a high-quality grouping with big names, big breakdown value and big-time moments. The veritable Who's Who bears colorful reverse-side stampings for all of the major news services—AP, International News, Underwood & Underwood, Wide World, Acme—and half of the photos retain their original paper press captions. Frontally, there's the usual mix of editorial marks, background masks, peripheral handling wear, surface crazing and trimmed borders. Sizes range from 5" x 7" to 8" x 10". Includes: 1) 1921 w/F. Baker; 2) 1925 w/Goslin (interesting composite of a batting image and batting-grip close-up); 3) 1926 w/Bottomley; 4) 1928 w/McGraw, Hornsby; 5) 1928 w/Alexander; 6) 1928 w/McGraw, T.
