Exceptionally clean and detailed portrait photograph of young Hall of Famer Al Simmons taken either in 1924 or 1925 by the uniform which puts this right about his rookie season! Among the greatest hitters to ever play the game, he absolutely tore up the American League throughout the 1920's! The quality of this image can not be overstated as even the slightest detail is visible in this silver gelatin masterpiece. The condition is likewise stunning making this a nearly perfect specimen that pre-dates his rookie baseball cards. Without a doubt one of his best photos out there!
