Lot 386. Two Vintage Pirates Photos – One of Pie Traynor and Paul Waner, and One of Lloyd Waner. An April 10, 1937 Associated Press photo shows Paul Waner signing his 1937 contract “to end a prolonged holdout” as Traynor, the Pirates’ manager, looks over his shoulder. The 7” x 9” photo has a dated AP caption attached. A date stamp on the back is easily readable, while the Associated Press stamp is extremely light. The photo has moderate creases on the images and heavy creases and a small tear along the right edge. On the back, the 6” x 7” photo of Lloyd Waner is dated Jan. 1967 and marked to occupy three columns. Apparently from an unidentified newspaper, it shows moderate and heavy creases. Traynor and the Waner Brothers are all Hall of Fame members, Traynor inducted in 1948, Paul (“Big Poison”) in 1952 and Lloyd (“Little Poison”) in 1967. Winning Bid $55.
