1940 Horizontal photograph of Eddie Collins and Tom Yawkey together as they survey the field and evaluate their players. Yawkey was the young owner of the Boston Red Sox and Eddie Collins was his General Manager. Together they led the Red Sox resurgence and this photo was taken at the time the franchise was poised to turn the corner. A silver gelatin photo taken by the Associated Press and with a paper caption and newspaper articles on the back, this is a clear image with some handling wear that presents well.
