All are news-service photos from Acme, Associated Press, Wide World and the Philadelphia Record with intact or partially intact paper captions. Sizes range from 5" x 6" to 8" x 10", and condition averages EX overall with evidence of typical newsroom usage in the form of crop marks, editorial outlines/accents, background masking, and peripheral handling wear. The 5-1/2" x 6-1/2" shot of DiMaggio and Williams dates to that magical year of 1941 and carries a news-clipping caption alluding to their famous feats: "DiMaggio is still setting records for hitting in consecutive games, while Williams is leading his league in batting with an average of better than .400."
