Large dated 1967 photograph of young up and coming catching star Johnny Bench in uniform for the Buffalo Bisons and taken a year before his Topps rookie card! Pictured with his battery-mate Dick Stegman after he had struck out 13 men in that days game. A fantastic image that is stamped by the photographer Robert L. Smith and this is the only original example of this image we know of in the hobby!
