About Jim Russi:
Jim Russi grew up on the beach in southern California and began surfing at the age of 6 years old. He graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography with a B.A. in Fashion & Advertising. In 1978 he moved to the north shore of Oahu after what was planned as only a week-long surf trip to the island.

Surf photography in the 70’s was an up and coming field with less than a dozen photographers in the water. Jim had the good fortune of becoming close friends with a few other young talented photographers at the time, who were influential as Jim began his career, namely Aaron Chang, Jeff Hornbaker and Dan Merkel. He began photographing in the line-up beside these greats and has now been in the water photographing for 30 years.

From Martin Jacobs:
The San Francisco Seals were a minor league baseball team that played in the Pacific Coast League from 1903 through 1957. For more than half a century, the Seals baseball club was a fertile source of future major league players, with a legacy firmly grounded in the annals of Pacific Coast League baseball. Paul and Lloyd Waner, Ping Bodie, Earl Averill, William Kamm, Ferris Fain, Harry Heilmann, Smead Jolly, Lefty O’Doul, Frankie Crosetti, the DiMaggio brothers (Joe, Vince, and Dom), Larry Jansen, and others all launched their careers as Seals.

From 1903 to 1957, the Seals were the toast of the town, offering tight pennant races and intense games with the Oakland Oaks their cross-bay rivals while playing at Recreation Park and Seals Stadium. In almost 6 decades, the Seals won 11 pennants and 4 Governor’s Cups. They survived the earthquake and fire of 1906, the Great Depression, and two world wars.

About the Seller:
Martin Jacobs is a longtime Seals collector in virtually all major areas of the advanced sector for over 60 years. He is also the author of “The History of the San Francisco Seals-Images of Sport” published by Arcadia Publishing. The book details the team’s fascinating journey with rare archival photographs as well as statistics that bring this great Seals history to life.

Evel was a self-made American original. The jump over the Caesars Palace fountains put him on the map, and in a coma for 29 days.

Evel Knievel Caesars Palace

“In the old days they, the promoters, wanted more and more from me. They wanted me to jump or spill my blood and break my bones. Every time they wanted me to jump further, and further, and further. Hell, they thought my bike had wings.”
– evel knievel
