The Brearley Collection
Dennis Brearley was a Pulitzer Prize winning photo journalist for a Boston newspaper when in 1978 he left the newspaper industry to embark on a small business venture. Brearley very successfully sold the historic photographs printed from his collection of original negatives. This collection of original negatives is regarded as one of the greatest photographic archives of its type in the United States. The variety and quality of these images is truly remarkable. Additionally, Mr. Brearley loved to photograph baseball games holding the position of Red Sox team photographer from 1988-2001. The memorabilia collection accumulated by Mr. Brearley was very special to him because it consisted of photos from his collection of original negatives that were signed by the subject in the photo. He enjoyed presenting athletes with a collection of photographs from their playing days and in turn, they were more than happy to sign some of these photos for his personal collection. Mr. Brearley's favorite negative was Ted Williams at bat on opening day in 1947. Williams became familiar with this image and labeled it his "classic swing" shot.
The Personal Collection of Joe Sewell
Lots 101-140 originate from the personal collection of Hall of Fame member Joe Sewell. Sewell played from 1920-1933 for the Cleveland Indians winning World Championships in 1920 and 1932 with each club. His athletic career included a three year period in which he lettered as a football player at the University of Alabama before entering the Major Leagues in 1920. Sewell was an outstanding overall player with a career .312 batting average but is most known for his stunning record of the lowest strikeout rate in Major League history. During a career total of 7,132 at bats Sewell was retired via strikeout an astounding 114 times. Given the quality of pitching at the Major League level that particular mark is difficult to comprehend adding note to Sewell's legacy which may never be eclipsed. The following items are being offered for the first time publicly directly from the Sewell family and include a letter of provenance.
