c. 1910 Rare photograph of deadball era star Fred Mitchell in uniform with the New York Yankees and showing off his batting form. Issued by Spooner and Wells and stamped on the back, this is one of his finest images we have ever handled. Note the image is a bit of a mystery as it was taken during spring training and players were often wearing old uniforms until their new ones arrived. Mitchel is wearing what appears to be a 1904-05 Brooklyn jersey (B on crest) but he was likely wearing this after the fact so we feel the image actually pre-dates 1910, but could date as late as 1912 when he was with Buffalo.
