1927 New York Yankees "Murderers' Row" photos...



Item # 670002

June 5, 1927

THE DETROIT FREE PRESS, Sept. 4, 1927

* Murderers' Row photos
* New York Yankees baseball
* Babe Ruth & Lou Gehrig


The top of page 15 has great portrait photos showing 5 of the 6 players of baseball's iconic "murderers' row" with heading: "These Fellows Will Make the Heart of Any Pitcher Bleed At Sight of Them" Also includes: "...If the Yankees win the world's series this fall it will be because they hold the greatest punch in baseball. Ask the American league pitchers, they know." The missing player is Mark Koenig. Of course Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig are present in these photos. Nice to have from near the end of the 1927 season. This team is considered by many experts as the greatest team in major league history.
Complete issue with 40+ pages, light toning and some wear at the margins, generally good.
