There are baseball cards images and then there are the unique photographs that were actually the ones in the hands of the company that are THE photographs used to make the baseball cards. This Charles Conlon photograph of 1919 Black Sox World Series savior Dickie Kerr is one of the latter. This work of Conlon was mounted by him to thicker board for artistic use and bears his full name signature on the reverse which is quite rare. Baseball Magazine then added some extensive artwork to the piece for not only publication, but to make Dickie Kerr's Baseball Magazine Premium Photo baseball card! This is THE photographic proof for the card with paint added throughout that is seen in the finished product cherished by collectors. A unique photograph that has it all, the work of a master photographer, a 1919 Black Sox celebrity and a unique baseball card image all wrapped up in one! Photo displays great and with the artwork added, it is a unique masterpiece of early baseball card artwork!
