1921 Intense portrait photo of tragic New York Yankees pitcher Carl Mays in full uniform. A detailed image, this photo does a wonderful job capturing the same intensity and competitive nature that would accidently lead to Mays' pitched ball killing Ray Chapman months earlier in 1920. Issued by Underwood and Underwood with a bold stamp on the back as well as a detailed paper caption from the World Series, this has fantastic clarity and grades almost perfectly.
