1964 New York Yankees Signed "Photo Pack" Photos with Maris, and Berra (14)
Starting Bid - $100.00 , Sold For - $1,880.00
Collection of fourteen 1964 New York Yankees “Picture Pack” photos, each vintage-signed by the respective player on the front: Mickey Mantle (clubhouse signature), Roger Maris, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Elston Howard, Ralph Terry, Tom Tresh, Al Downing, Clete Boyer, Tony Kubek, Joe Pepitone, Bobby Richardson, Jim Bouton, and Mel Stottlemeyer. Each player is identified in print below his name along with his team affiliation, “New York Yankees.” All of the signatures have been scripted in vintage blue ink, with the exception of Berra and Terry (black marker), and grade “9/10.” This particular set is not checklisted in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards ; however, the issue can be definitivel y dated to 1964 due to the fact that Berra is also identified as manager below his image. (During the 1960s Berra only managed the Yankees in 1964.) It is not known if the fourteen photos offered here represent a complete set, but the fact that it includes all nine starters and the club’s top five pitchers from that season indicates that it probably does. A nearly identical Yankees photo pack, issued one year later in 1965 (that set is check listed in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards ), contained a total of twelve photos. These photo packs were sold at the stadium concession stands. Although the photos themselves are not rare, signed sets, such as this, certainly are, and this is the first such example we have ever offered. The black-and-white photos (5 x 7 inches) all display light handling wear, including some with a few tiny edge creases and very minor soiling, and are in Excellent condition overall (the Mantle photo also displays a very small area of surface paper loss along the top white border). LOA from James Spence/JSA. Total: 14 photos. Reserve $100. Estimate $300/$600. SOLD FOR $1,880.00
