Interesting photograph done by photographer Louis Van Oeyen as a sort of retrospective near the end of his life where he took photographs of the front pages of the newspapers of the 1919 World Series because he took the images used in the papers! The offered image is of the September 23, 1919 World Series preview showing the superstar experts who would be assisting the Cincinnati Post in covering the series. Little did the paper know that it would be some of these "experts" that would uncover the greatest scandal in baseball history. A fantastic side note is that a young Louis Van Oeyen Himself is pictured on the front page! A cool item from the most famous World Series of all time and from one of the top baseball photographers ever. Done in the 1930's and stamped on the back by Van Oeyen!
