1925 Portrait style photograph of Eddie Moore from the Pittsburgh Pirates and dated during the World Series they would win! A quality player for over a decade, he would bat .298 this year and was one of the more dependable players on the Pirates roster. Taken by superstar photographer Charles Conlon and stamped on the back, this is a spectacular image in great condition. Charles Conlon (1886-1945) was America's first sports photojournalist. In the primitive days of photography, he lugged his camera to the ballpark to capture the heroes of the game in their natural setting and paved the way for a new genre of photography. His work encompassed four decades and he became a true master of his craft. His images range from aging 19th century stars through the golden age of the game and most of the iconic baseball photographs of the early 20th century originate from the camera of Conlon. Due to the nature of his employment, images from Conlon are quite rare to find.
