Award-winning Washington Post photographer Dick Darcey (1929-2003) covered presidents, astronauts and, above all, athletes. He’s best remembered for striking shots of Redskins Sonny Jurgensen, John Riggins and Charley Taylor; Senators Harmon Killebrew, Frank Howard and Ted Williams; Georgetown’s Patrick Ewing; and ring legends Muhammad Ali and Sugar Ray Leonard. Post columnist Thomas Boswell called Darcey "the best newspaper sports photographer of his day." Tragically, the vast majority of Darcey’s photographic archive was swept out to sea in flooding. Thus, these original Darcey prints are among the rare survivors. Provenance-wise, they hail from the same magnificent collection as the William Jacobellis, Bob Olen and Henry Barr photos that Huggins & Scott has had the privilege of handling over the past few years. Indeed, Darcey belongs to that same elite pantheon of 20th-century master photographers.


Smiling manager Ted Williams claps along with his players and the fans during a standing ovation for #18—either Bill Gogolewski, Dick Such or Pete Broberg—who leaves the field for the dugout. Also included is an action shot of hurler Dick Bosman and a bird's-eye view of D.C. Stadium. Dimensions are 7x9 to 8x10. VG-EX condition.
