Large c. 1910 profile style cabinet photograph of baseball superstar Napoleon Lajoie in full uniform. A massive image for the style of photography that measures approximately 10 inches tall, the photo is crystal clear and off the original glass plate negative, developed in 1910. One of the finest images of Lajoie that we have ever personally seen in the hobby, this is of such a high quality that it is almost impossible to imagine a close-up in uniform could be this clear with the equipment available to outdoor photographers at the time. The photo has pinholes at the corners from editorial use but it presents fantastic. A Hall of Fame worthy image that is among the finest images of any deadball baseball players we have ever handled.
