Description



1947 was a magnificent year for baseball, particularly for the inhabitants of New York City. The Yankees and the Dodgers met in the World Series, with the "Pinstripers" emerging victorious yet again, but the biggest news was Jackie Robinson crossing the color line. Keep the memory of this historic season alive, with this 1947 N.Y. Journal-American team photo lot of (3). Featuring the Yankees, Dodgers and Giants, these 18x12 newspaper supplements cover all of New York's teams, with many great players of the day noted, including Robinson in his rookie year, seated in the front row of the Dodgers photo. Other standouts pictured are Joe DiMaggio, "Yogi" Berra, Phil Rizzuto, "Pee Wee" Reese, Gil Hodges, Johnny Mize, Ernie Lombardi, Travis Jackson and Mel Ott. Printed on heavy paper stock, these ancient photos report in average (GD-VG) condition due to creasing and stress marks from being rolled, but they are remarkably free of pinholes and tears, while the images remain distinct and the surfaces are clean.
