Show us some of your vintage WirePhotos (WP) with associated BB cards.

I'll start this show with this great 1941 WP of Brothers DiMaggio.

I don't have any wire photos to share (yet), but I was considering buying one. In fact, I stopped by the board to ask peoples' opinions of them. They're not type I Conlin prints, but do folks regard them as legitimate collectibles, or junk, or maybe neat but not really collectible? Ted apparently likes them, that's a pretty good vote in their favor. I haven't branched out into sports collectibles at all beyond baseball cards, so I don't have any knowledge at all of the photo side of things.

Wire photos are a great and less expensive way to collect great images. I don't think I have any now but have in the past.
Nice one, Ted.

This Wire Photo is my favorite. It evokes a flashback to when I was 10 years old. I remember this Oct 1, 1949 play-off game as if it was played yesterday.
Stay tuned for my story.





1949 BOWMAN and 1949 LEAF

Default Continuing from above post......

In the late 1940's there were two exciting pitchers named "Page". Joe "Fireman" Page and Leroy "Satchell" Paige. I can attest to this, having seen both of these pitchers
perform their magic on the mound. My story this time is of Joe Page.

1948 BOWMAN ....... 1949 LEAF


Sept 30, 1949 Fenway Park, the Red Sox won the 1st game of this 3-game Play-Off series for the A.L. Championship. Oct 1, 1949 Yankee Stadium(69,551 attendance).
Allie Reynolds (starting) did not have it that day. Casey Stengel brought in his ace reliever, Joe Page, in the 3rd inning. Joe Page completely shut-down the Red Sox for
6 and 2/3rd innings (allowing only one Hit and striking out 6 batters). In the 8th inning with the score tied at 4-4, Johnny Lindell hit a HR into the Left-field seats.
Page quickly shut-out Boston's big hitters in the 9th, the Yankees went on to win the play-off series the next day. In relief vs. the Dodgers in the W.S., Page pitched in
3 games, won 1 game, saved 1 game (striking out 8 batters in 9 innings). The rest is history as the Yankees won 5 consecutive World Championships (1949 - 1953).

Baseball historians still consider this 13th win of the year for Page as one of the greatest clutch pitching performances in Baseball history. **


1949 Stats....Joe Page (strictly in Relief pitching role)

W-L....13-8

Saves......27

Games pitched.....60 (League leader)

Games finished....48 (League leader)

I cherish this experience from my youth, so I thought this story was worth sharing with you guys. Hope you found it interesting.

I'm happy that you appreciated my story. It was exciting being a young BB fan in that era. Especially if you were a Yankees fan

Default WirePhotos & BB cards....Perfect together

This Wire Photo features a play from Game 1 of the 1953 World Series.

Unlike most BB players, Billy Martin rarely appeared at signing sessions (circa 1980's). And this was certainly evident the day I got Billy to sign this photo.
It was at the December 1982 BB card show in Atlantic City. My table was located near where Billy was signing. I was amazed at the constant long lines of
autograph seekers lined up to get Billy's signature. This show featured Willie, Mickey, the Duke, Whitey Ford, Mohammed Ali and many more sports stars.
But, none of these celebrities had people lining up to get their autographs as much as Billy did that day. After several hours, Billy's line finally diminished.
So, I got in line for Billy's autograph. I noticed he rarely looked up at anyone, and did not talk much. Some one observed.... "perhaps he was hung over".

When I showed him this photo, he looked at me and asked..."where did you find it ?" I replied..."I collect wirephotos of memorable events from my youth.
And, in that 1953 World Series, you single-handedly ** beat the Dodgers, you were amazing". He signed my photo, and responded with..... "Yes, I guess
I really did. Thanks buddy, you made my day".









** Billy's 1953 World Series stats (6 games).
BA = .500
Hits = 12
HRs = 2
RBI = 8
SLG = .958
