Large 1916 head to toe pitching photograph of Elmer Myers arguably the wort pitcher in the American League on his way to 23 losses and leading the league in earned runs and walks. Connie Mack must have seen something in the kid because he went right back out the next year and was even worse! Issued by the International News and stamped on the back, this is his finest image we have ever seen. Despite a few pinholes and some artistic tracing from publication, this displays really well.
