Longtime player, manager and executive “Bucky” Harris rode out the highs and lows of the Washington Senators franchise during three different stints to earn HOF recognition. This venerated baseball “lifer” guided the Senators through their glorious triumphs of the 1920s and their pitiful woes of the 1950s. Appropriately Harris is shown as the Senators player/manager in this group of (5) vintage press photos. Featured are:
1924 7x9 photo of Harris taking in the action behind the batting cage, this photo is generally pleasing with exception to a clipped corner at top left, authenticity is found in an obverse grease pencil editorial mark and a Pacific & Atlantic Photos credit stamp on the reverse, also affixed to the reverse is a press blurb dated 9/2/24
1924 8x10 photo of Harris posed on the field with hands on hips, this photo is affected by considerable patches of white-out material to rate as lesser in condition, a title caption appears at bottom which reads “Bucky Harris Mgr. of Senators 1924”, the reverse is blank
1920s 4x5 photo of Harris posed on a golf course in gentlemanly attire, this photo is in better condition despite a few light creases near the upper corners, gloss is superb and the image is very sharp, the reverse has pencil notations that read “”Bucky Harris captain of the Washington champions”, also present on the reverses is a “24” stamp suggesting along with the written note that this photo dates to 1924
1924 8x10 photo of Harris swinging the bat, very appealing despite a light scratch, a few creases and a clipped corner at top right, reverse has a Cleveland News credit stamp dated 10/11/24 and the written notation “Stanley Harris and another name crossed out
1952 8x10 photo of Harris posed on the dugout steps, the image of Harris is outlined in white-out material and cropping marks are present on the obverse, otherwise this photo is above average and may date to an earlier period than the reverse side pen notation that reads “used Oct. 1952”, the reverse has several other notations, a blurb and a United Newspictures credit stamp
