There may be a few Type I examples in the mix here, but for all intents and purposes, this is a Type III collection from the heyday of wire transmissions. Highlights include Walter Hagan (2), Gary Player (3), Marlene Hagge (5), Bobby Locke, Chick Evans, Frank Stranahan (3 - golfer and world-ranked weightlifter known as "Toledo Strongman") and George Selkirk (Yankee ballplayer). Sizes are mostly 7x9 to 8x10 with copyright stampings primarily from the Cleveland Press, Acme Newspictures and United Press. Typical newsroom usage wear throughout.
