1917 Large batting photo in full uniform of famed 1919 Chicago Black Sox gambler Charles "Swede" Risberg. Taken by noted photographer Charles Conlon with his handwriting on the back and stamped as well, this is among the best (if not THE best) image of Risberg ever taken and especially in this large format! Photo has a light crease and some pinholes from publication but overall it is a pretty nice example and only the second we have ever seen!
