Stunning 1909 portrait photograph of Bill Rariden, the young catcher from the Boston Braves in full uniform. Rariden was never much of a hitter but the fact that he survived twelve years in the big leagues sporting an average of .237 is a testament to how good he was behind the plate. An underrated player from an era where defense was at a premium, this is a perfect 10/10 from famous photographer Paul Thompson and stamped on the back!
