It's pretty easy to surmise the reason the Yankees pop up so often in the collectibles world: they won more than everybody else. A fair number of the 20th Century players who fueled their near perpetual winning ways step forward with this autographed photo collection. Served up are (45) Yankees single-signed and multi-signed 8x10s. These crisp, clean photos suit up in excellent to like-new condition and signature strength is very pleasing, averaging ("9-10"). Auction LOA from JSA.
