Unique 1915 photograph of young Detroit Tigers rookie Bill "Baby Doll" Jacobson. He would go onto a stellar Major League career including 1700 hits and a .314 career average but he only wore a Detroit uniform for a small period of time as a rookie making this a special piece of photography from one of the star hitters of his era. Photo presents well with a black circle done for publication and some pinholes being the only flaws. This is one of only two known images of Jacobson in Detroit uniform known from his rookie year.
