Lot 50.  World Champion 1925 Pittsburgh Pirates with Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford. This beautiful black and white 11” x 17” photo captures the Pirates team with the Hollywood stars on the set of the movie “Don Quixote.” While it grades vg due to some inoffensive creasing, it displays as ex. It is professionally matted and framed with two typed letters from Barney Dreyfus on “Pittsburgh Athletic Company” stationary. Both letters are to C. B. Shelton, a minor league player with the Pirates Durham club. The Dreyfus signatures appear to be identical to exemplars. At the end of each signature, however, is the letter “R,” suggesting that they are secretarial. The lithographed letterhead is outstanding, and the photo is large and impressive. It shows Fairbanks and Pickford with Pie Traynor, Kiki Cuyler, Paul Waner, Babe Adams and a host of other Pirates.
Winning Bid $400.
