Some Vintage Baseball Photographs at RMY Auctions - Including Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson at UCLA and Hands of the '37 Yankees

It's amazing the level of quality vintage press photographs that have been hitting the hobby lately.  Yesterday, I shared some Jackie Robinson photographs from the collection of famed sports broadcaster George Michael.  Today, I show some vintage photographs that are available through RMY Auctions.

BTW,  this auction closes on Saturday (tomorrow), so get crackin' if you're interested.  I apologize for putting this up so late.  I just found out about it (via Sports Collectors Daily).

Below is a photograph of a teenage Babe Ruth as a member of St. Marys Industrial School.  It was originally taken in 1913, but this print is a second-generation print, circa 1920's.

Now that you've seen Babe Ruth as a teen at the start of his Baseball life, check out Ruth at the very end of his Baseball career below.  Here is a 1938 photo of some Brooklyn boys singing a tune.  From left to right: Tuck Stainbuck, Buddy Nassett, KiKi Cuyler and Babe Ruth.

Below is an ACME press photo featuring the 1940 UCLA "first string".  As you can see, fullback and future Baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson is on the right side.  This photo is from the first day of practice.

I love seeing photos of the Brooklyn faithful cheering on their Dodgers.  The below photo is from 1942, and was taken in Shibe Park.  Over 400 Dodger fans drove all the way to Philadelphia to see them play.

This is one of the more unique press photos you'll ever see.  Below are the hands of the starting lineup of the 1937 Yankees.  From left to right: Frank Crosetti, Red Rolfe, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Bill Dickey, George Selkirk, Myril Hoag, Tony Lazzeri, and Lefty Gomez.
