In the world of baseball card images, the early and more obscure the set, the harder it is to pinpoint the photographs used to make them. With many of these sets using regional photographers to take images for them and in many cases generic photos were used with artwork done to make it look like specific players. Only a few early action photographs used to make cards from the popular sets from 1909-1911 like T206 ever come up for sale and most players have no known examples of the photos used to make their cards. This all makes the offered original photograph even more exciting. Offered here for the first time ever is the actual photograph used to make Hal Chase's 1910 E93 Standard Caramel and E98 baseball cards! This is the only example of this photograph from our research and it presents beautifully in nice shape and grading a 9.5/10 and showing the famous ballplayer in action at the ballpark. Crystal clear and bold, this is stamped on the back and is one of the only caramel card action images of any player to hit the market!
