1907 Vintage silver gelatin action photograph of young catcher George Gibson from the Pittsburgh Pirates in what was essentially his first full season in baseball. File stamped on the back by the Central Press from 1914, this is when they started adding sports images to their library and not when the photo was produced which is clearly 1907 based on the paper and style of photography. Gibson is a popular deadball era player and this is perhaps his finest image we have ever seen, offered here for the first time ever fresh out of a newspaper archive. Photo is creased and has some pinholes but the quality of the image is really nice for being 114 years old!
