Super 1920s Collection Of Photographs Including The NY Giants' Benny Kauff

Super 1920s Collection Of Photographs Including The NY Giants' Benny Kauff

These 1920s-era photos of three major leaguers from the time, recall a league where the spikes-up, kill-or-be-killed style of play ruled the day, and booze, cigars, gamblers and nightclubs ruled their nights. Benny Kauff, `the Ty Cobb of the Federal League? played hard, partied harder and ran with a rough crowd during his time with the New York Giants, which ended July 2 1920 when he was banned for life for his role in a stolen car ring. New York Giants pitcher Slim Sallee, was a junkballer with great control who writers said would rather stop playing than stop drinking. Roger Peckinpaugh, was considered among the best shortstops in the American League with the New York Yankees and at 23, even managed the club for 14 games in 1914. Photos are black and white and are G-VG. Kauff?s photo is 6-1/2 X 8-1Z2? and has some surface scratches. The back includes his last name and stamp by the photographer, Paul Thompson. The Sallee picture is 8 X 10? with slight staining and tears at the bottom border. The back of the photo includes his name and a stamp from the New York Tribune. Peckinpaugh?s photo is 6-1/4 X 8-1/2?. A three-inch section of the lower left corner has been torn away. The back includes a date stamped Oct. 5, 1921 as well as stamps for the Philadelphia Inquirer and The Sun and Herald Syndicate.
