Original June 12, 1939 photograph of the ten living members of the FIRST Hall of Fame Class posed at Cooperstown, New York. Babe Ruth leads the pack but we also find Honus Wagner, Grover Alexander, Tris Speaker, Larry Lajoie, George Sisler, Walter Johnson, Eddie Collins, Connie Mack and Cy Young. Condition is nearly perfect and this is only the second "Vintage 1" or "Type 1" example of this photograph we have ever offered, stamped on the back from Wide World Photos and in nice shape. The importance of this photograph can not be overstated and original examples of this image are needed by even the most advanced collectors! One of the most important baseball moments of all time and an undervalued photograph!
