Description

Sporting News shutterbug Don Wingfield was highlighted as one of "The Great Post-War Photographers" in the book A Portrait of Baseball Photography: The Definitive History of our Pastime's Pictures, News Services, and Photographers (Fogel, Oser, Yee; 2005). Here, he captures with crystal-clear focus the pantheon of legends at Yankee Stadium's 8th annual Old Timers Day, including DiMaggio, Foxx, Clarke, Hubbell, Cochrane, Simmons, Grove, Cronin, Vance, Sisler, Hartnett and Frisch. A two-inning game was played that saw Joltin' Joe rap 2 doubles and Tommy Henrich clout a grand slam. Displaying Wingfield's stamp on its reverse, the 8x10 photo also features a terrific view of the spectators plus a security guard on the dugout roof. Light general surface wear and a staple mark at top center.
