Original Photographs of Hank Bauer in Presentation Binder from Life Magazine

Price: $1,750.00

Softcover. Folio. Spiral bound flexible red plastic *Life Magazine* wrappers. Binder is near fine with a little light wear. Clear sheets enclosing fifteen fine, original black and white, or sepia-toned photographs of baseball player Hank Bauer when he was manager of the World Series-winning 1966 Baltimore Orioles. Each photo has the back mark of *Life Magazine*, and the name of the photographer. Ten are by Bob Gomel and are labeled for an article "Baseball - Hank Bauer," the other five are by Jerry Brimacombe for an article "Sam McDowell." Sizes of each are approximately 8.5" x 13". Apparently prepared for two different articles, we can only presume that they were given to Bauer in this presentation folder. Bauer is pictured alternately pensive, playful, and pugnacious, including a series of photos of him nose-to-nose with an equally unhappy umpire. The hardnosed Bauer had been a Marine hero in WWII and was also noted as one of Mickey Mantle's preferred drinking partners when he played for the New York Yankees.
