1913 Detailed silver gelatin portrait photograph of Hall of Famer Eddie Plank from the Philadelphia Athletics in uniform and taken on the eve of the World Series. A bold and clearly vintage example, this is highly silverized and is a strong image that can be seen across the room. Issued by Underwood and Underwood and with their credit on the lower right corner, there is a paper name "Plank" glued to the front for publication in a newspaper but it is otherwise a beautiful image with a tiny bit of damage on the lower right being the only flaw. One of the finer Plank portraits we have ever handled.
