We have been given an amazing collection
of over 1,000 original vintage and true antique sports photographs and some ameteur baseball photos on consignment.
The subject matter is mostly baseball with some nice boxing and basketball thrown in.
There is a mix of 1st Generation Type One press photographs and same day wire photos.
A large portion of these are UPI wire and Press Photos
put together by somebody working in the United Press International New York main office. He focused primarily on the Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Yankees and Giants, but there is a good assortment of stars from other teams as well. These date from the early 1940s to 1960, with a few earlier.
All of these are from the same day of release,
most have dated captions attached on reverse.
There are also many Acme News Photos.
Many have various UPA and UPI in-house stamps on reverse.
Most have reverse stamp of news agency. Many have attached captions. There are also a large number missing their captions. When we can ID these that are missing their captions we will list them. Eventually we'll sell a lot of the hard to ID photos in groups.
Also, we will list when we can groups of wire photos, perhaps broken down by team.
Condition varies, some are sharp and clean,
some show a good amount of wear,
most will fall between the two.
We'll be selling these both individually and in groups.
In addition, there are many candid snapshots
of ballplayers and stadiums
including cabinet photographs and Real Photo Post Cards
going back to the early 1900s.
We want to list this entire group
within the next several weeks,
so you will want to put us on your
