5 Vintage 1920s-30s Photos Featuring Pittsburgh Pirates Pitchers.

Lot 381. 5 Vintage 1920s-30s Photos Featuring Pittsburgh Pirates Pitchers. Some uncommon images are among these photos. Four Pittsburgh pitchers appear in a 6” x 8” photo with an Aug. 6, 1931 stamp and a very light International News Photos stamp on the back: Ervin Brame, Glenn Spencer, Larry French and Ray Kremer. Kremer helped the Pirates to become World Champions in 1925 by winning 17 games in the regular season and two more in the World Series. He twice led the N.L. in wins and ERA. The photo has a moderate crease near the lower right corner. Emil Yde is one of four Pirates players in individual photos. A Pittsburgh pitcher 1924-27, he is the subject of a 6.5” x 8.5” photo distributed by Pacific & Atlantic Photos, which placed its stamp on the back. The photo has several light or light-to-moderate creases, primarily in the corners, writing in the left border and a chip in the bottom border. His photos are not abundant. Neither are those of Drew Rader. His photo offered here has been neatly trimmed to create a 6.5” x 4.5” die-cut with scrapbook residue on the back. Several light-to-moderate creases are present. Rader’s MLB career consisted of one game for the Pirates in 1921. He pitched two scoreless innings without a decision. A Sept. 26, 1938 World Wide Photo, 5” x 7”, provides a portrait of Robert Klinger, who pitched for the Pirates from 1938-43. The date is on a caption attached to the back of the photo, which is stamped Oct. 1938. In six seasons with Pittsburgh, Klinger’s record was 62-58 with nine saves and an ERA of 3.74. He lost the 1944 and 1945 seasons to World War II. Primarily a relief pitcher in 10 MLB seasons, five with Pittsburgh, Mace Brown is presented by International News Photos in a vintage 5” x 7” portrait. The photo service’s stamp is on the back, along with stamps for Oct. 1938 and June 4, 1939. The photo has several minor creases. Winning Bid $68.
