1949 Beautiful photograph of young Brooklyn Dodgers star Duke Snider showing his batting form in front of the team dugout at Ebbets Field. A special photo for a couple of reasons, this was taken the year of his rookie baseball cards making it one of his finest early images, but more importantly it is the photo used to make his 1951 Bowman baseball card which is widely considered one of the most beautiful of the set! The photo is on vintage paper and carries the important Dodgers team stamp that indicates Type 1 from PSA for sure! The photo is absolutely stunning and is a crystal clear specimen that presents well with note to a few light creases and handling wear (a few light scrapes near his shoulder and left arm that blend in with the background) as well as some editorial marks and framing from publication. One of the best baseball card images of the era we have handled, this one has all the bells and whistles collectors want and it will get a Type 1 from PSA!
