1922 Yankee Stadium Original Construction Photograph PSA Type 1
GENESIS! A Historic and RARE, vintage 1922 ORIGINAL News Service Photo issued by Times Wide World Photos depicting the construction of the famous building known around the world as Yankee Stadium, “The House that Ruth Built”, in actuality, the Osborn Engineering Company in an amazing 284 days for the cost of $2.5 million. Original press stamp, date and caption are on the verso of this 8” x 10” with some chipping but all restricted to the white borders and does not cut into the all-important central image which is nothing short of spectacular with excellent contrast and crisp clarity (you can easily see the lettering of the Osborn sign on top of the work shed) !
This is the first ‘period’ specimen we have offered in over five years. While we have sold several original photos of Yankees Stadium being constructed over the years, none of those private collectors have any interest in parting with their examples anytime soon. So if you need one for your collection or permanent archives, here it is. As significant of a vintage Yankees photograph that you could hope to own !.
