1916 Snapshot photograph of the New York Yankees warming up at the Polo Grounds before a game. The reverse mentions that 6'7" Slim Love is the tallest man in baseball "Standing next to man in suit". What it does not mention is the exact identity of the man in the suit, because it looks like photographer Charles Conlon holding his camera. The man in clearly aged (perhaps in his fifties or early sixties) and is a photographer, standing exactly where Conlon would take the majority of his images, the Polo Grounds. All things considered, the odds are very high it is Conlon himself! Despite a large chip off the upper left, the photo presents pretty well with crystal clarity.
