Our goal is to bridge the gap between the previously distinct worlds of high-end sports memorabilia and fine art photography, with a great focus on the highly artistic quality of sports photography, celebrating the talent and vision of some of the world’s finest shooters, who happen to have shot sports, either as vocation or merely avocation.

Just turned 18, Bobby Orr, the wunderkind from Parry Sound, is caught in the lens as he gears up for one of the final rushes of his junior hockey career before moving onto the Boston Bruins. Orr’s Oshawa Generals (including future Boston Bruin teammate Wayne Cashman, shown here) would lose this game, played at Maple Leaf Gardens, 2-1, and, with it, the Memorial Cup, to the Edmonton Oil Kings in six games.

SPORT Magazine

SPORT magazine launched in 1946, as the first-general interest sports magazine. It seized an unappreciated subject like sports and took it mainstream.

Fondly remembered today as pure Americana, SPORT was the brainchild of a small New York publisher, MacFadden Publications Inc, and became a triumph from the day its first issue hit the street with a color image of Joe DiMaggio and his son Joe, Jr. on the cover.

That inaugural edition included eight full color plates — unheard of at the time — and almost immediately SPORT rose to over a million in circulation and became half bible, half guru to a generation of men coming of age in post-war America.

In its early years, SPORT had the market for magazine-style sports journalism virtually to itself and, under founding editor Ernest Heyn, pioneered a brand of behind-the-scenes glimpses of the heroes of the day not previously attempted.Read more

There have been some technological advancements made to the Friendly Confines recently — a massive jumbotron now provides in-game highlights — but, for the most part, the ballpark looks just as it did in the early days.  Wrigley […]
