Description



Rookie Joe DiMaggio shares a laugh with teammates, Lou Gehrig stares down solemnly and Tony Lazzeri looks straight into the camera in this rather informal shot that evidently preceded a more official one. Indeed, one wonders what purpose it may have served International News (whose stamp appears on the reverse) to print the unofficial shot in such a large format. The stamping, paper stock and paper-caption remnant suggest Type I status, yet while the image is very clear, it's not crystal-clear—perhaps because of the enlarged dimensions. Typical peripheral handling wear from newsroom usage.
