All of these shots were transmitted over the wire at the time and are thus Type III examples. Most have image-embedded captions and hail from the Associated Press or United Press International. There's a great variety of field/locker room/street scenes with nice teammate cameos. Sizes range from 6x8 to 8x10. Highlights include a two-scene sequential of Mantle's grand slam in Game 5 of the 1953 World Series; a bench-clearing Yankees/Indians brawl from 1963 with Mantle described in the caption as "the Yankees' million-dollar cripple"; DiMaggio, Mantle and Stengel from a 1971 Old Timers' Game; and Berra, Mantle and DiMaggio from 1961. Typical medium-to-heavy editorial usage wear throughout.
