One of the most iconic of all athletes of the golden era is not a human, but the race horse "Seabiscuit." A symbol of hope during the Great Depression, images and all things "biscuit" are highly sought after by collectors. His rise to fame and glory also coincided with shortages of paper so images of the horse are actually very tough to find with this being one of the earliest and finest examples we have ever handled! Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption, this is being offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of a newspaper archive. Photo is high grade and has some cool artistic shading from publication which really makes the image pop!
