A pair of Chicago White Sox teammates from the mid-1930s are the centerpieces of this lot: Hall of Fame outfielder Al Simmons, who fell just shy of the 3,000-hit club, and infielder Jimmy Dykes, who compiled a solid .280 lifetime batting average over a 22-year playing career before winding his way to the manager's office. The Simmons photo is signed in fountain pen and is a strong 9/10. It is personalized: "Best wishes to Howard." The image shows great contrast as Simmons is wearing a great style Sox uniform. A George Burke stamp is on reverse. The photo is VG but presents nicer. Jimmy Dykes' signature is 9/10 and has a lengthy personalization. The photo is GD/VG due to creasing.
