Important 1937 photograph of star pitcher Johnny Allen of the Cleveland Indians, taken by Charles Conlon and stamped on the back. This is from the archives of the Baseball Magazine and this is THE PHOTO that was painted and marked for use on the COVER of the April 1937 issue of Baseball Magazine! A unique piece of baseball art, this is being offered here for the first time ever since it was sold in 1996 as part of the famous Baseball magazine collection. The cut marks at the upper left are technically damage to the photo but are actually part of the production process and should not be seen as a detraction.
