Immersive collection featuring 39 news service photos depicting Hall of Famers out of uniform, mostly engaging in leisure activities. Includes: Johnny Bench (w/Brooks Robinson), Yogi Berra, Fred Clark, Ty Cobb, Mickey Cochrane, Leo Durocher, Whitey Ford, Hank Greenberg, Reggie Jackson, Walter Johnson (2, one w/Bill McKechnie), Ralph Kiner, Bob Lemon, Connie Mack (2), Rabbit Maranville, Christy Mathewson, Willie Mays, John McGraw (4), Johnny Mize, Jim Palmer, Herb Pennock, Phil Rizzuto, Jackie Robinson (only weeks prior to his death), Ray Schalk (2), Al Simmons, George Sisler, Tris Speaker (4), Bill Terry, Dazzy Vance (2), and Honus Wagner. Condition across this collection remains excellent, with all photos displaying some degree of scattered wear inherent to photos once stored by working news photo services. One John McGraw photo is missing a lower-right corner, otherwise all examples remain fully intact and highly presentable. These photos are fresh to the hobby and originate from the Photo File archive where they have remained for the past several decades until the time of this sale. 39 photos total.
