3 Photos Related to the 1927 Movie “Slide, Kelly, Slide” and 1 of Mike Donlin.

Lot 215. 3 Photos Related to the 1927 Movie “Slide, Kelly, Slide” and 1 of Mike Donlin. In this silent movie from MGM, Jim Kelly, an arrogant young baseball player from Iowa, who believes he can teach baseball’s best something about the game, joins the New York Yankees. His pitching is stellar and he slugs home runs, but his teammates soon tire of his bragging and rube-like pranks. The team’s veteran catcher, whose daughter becomes Kelly’s love interest, tries to help the self-proclaimed whiz kid. There are three 8” x 10” sepia photos. One shows store fronts with a poster promoting the movie; vg+ to ex with small creases in two corners and ¼” edge tear. Another has actors portraying the Cincinnati Red Stockings, generally regarded as the first pro baseball team; vg with corner and edge creases and chips. And a third presents a scene from the movie; vg, clipped upper right corner. The collection also includes a 1950s-60s photo postcard of “Turkey Mike” Donlin, one of at least four MLB players who appeared as themselves in the movie. The postcard is ex+ with some information about Donlin written on the back. One of the best hitters of the Dead Ball era, he batted .333 in 12 MLB seasons with 1,282 hits and 543 RBI. He struck out only 39 times in 3,854 at-bats. Donlin appeared in primarily small supporting roles in more than 40 movies. Winning Bid $45.
