UPI/AP Wirephotos

Official UPI/AP Wirephotos/Laserphotos are very limited with usually only 1 sent to major newspapers. Transmitted electronically by the UPI/AP only to subscribing newspapers for possible use in their sports sections, the photos were printed in black & white on electro-static printers and are far from the quality of photos we have become accustomed to. Condition of most photos ranges from EX+ to NM/MINT. As a bonus, some photos have the blue-line cropping marks made by editors prior to their appearing in the paper.

Scarce, interesting and a snapshot of history, they make great collectibles for the player or team collector. Imagine Wirephotos and laserphotos are no longer transmitted in this manner (I believe they stopped in the early 1990's). Images are now transmitted directly from computer to computer with no need for an actual hardcopy photo to be produced.

Images of nearly all wirephotos are available for your inspection. To save space and time, they were produced with a low resolution digital camera. The resulting images do not do the wirephotos justice. The wirephotos are much nicer than they appear in the images.

These are from the archives of the San Diego Union Tribune and will make a nice addition to your collection.
