Seldom have we come across a cache of signed news-service/wire photos quite like this one. Unsigned news-service/wire photos, sure. Signed 8x10 photos, sure. But this combination of signatures and Type III photos in such quantity is rather unusual. There are also occasional Type I's in the mix. Overall condition is typical of newsroom-usage wear and handling. Signature strength is primarily "8-10". Auction LOA from JSA.
