Completely original 1911 silver gelatin pitching action photograph of the most famous player in baseball, Christy Mathewson of the New York Giants. A nearly perfect image in great shape, this is from the actual archives of Underwood and Underwood in New York and although shot from a duplicate negative, this is absolutely an original from 1911. Some silvering is evident on the black edges and this is the only vintage example of this photograph we have ever seen!
