RMY Auctions is offering over 1,100 Rare and Iconic Sports Photos in their current auction that ends Saturday, October 5, 2013. Bid and register here at rmyauctions.com. It’s one of those “yard sale shopper discovers famous painting” type stories. Recently, Historic Images purchased a sizable collection of photos which had been held in private hands and locked away for several decades. Many of the boxes were still sealed and the contents unknown.
Contained within were hundreds of original date-stamped sports photos; including all the big names: Shoeless Joe Jackson, Ty Cobb, Joe DiMaggio, Satchel Paige, Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, Walter Johnson, Bobby Jones, Yankee Stadium including photos by Charles Conlon and Louis Van Oeyen. Several Teams, Rookies and Artistic Study Shots: Grips, Arms, Feet, Equipment. But it’s not just the subject matter, it’s the rarity of the photos that have people talking. Many have never been seen before, anywhere.
And these are not just amazing images, but amazing stories. Rhys Yeakley has spent the last several months curating these photographs carefully describing each image and WHY it’s so significant.
