Nicknamed the "King of Shrimp," Sam Framo was Philadelphia's equivalent of famed super-fan restaurateurs like Boston's Nuf Ced McGreevy and Manhattan's Toots Shor. Framo's close relationship with the Mackmen is on full display in these crystal-clear, high-quality, heavy-stock photos—both of which are personalized to him. The first measures 10-3/4 x 13-1/2, shows peripheral adhesive wear and is signed by Mack ("8"). The second dates to 1948/1949, spans 11x14 and rates VG, with 21 signatures averaging "7" of C. Mack, Simmons, Joost, Fain, Kellner, McCahan, McCosky, Scheib, Crompton, Coleman, E. Mack, R. Mack, Fowler, Dykes, Astrots, Brissie, Rosar, etc. Auction LOA from JSA.
