Original c. 1910 portrait style studio photograph of the man who changed stock photography and created a series of baseball images that are highly sought after today, George Grantham Bain. Photographers themselves rarely appeared behind the lens and we have seen exactly four images of Bain in over twenty years of experience. While this one is a slightly later restrike, perhaps developed in the 1920's or 1930's, it is still a rare opportunity to get a photo of the man himself, George Grantham Bain.
