1923 Silver gelatin photograph of President Warren Harding as he is in town to throw out the first pitch of the baseball season in Washington. Joined in the stands by superstar pitcher Walter Johnson and the manager of the club (Owen Bush) this is the only example of this photograph we have ever seen. Issued by Underwood and Underwood and stamped on the back with a paper caption as well. Despite creases on the right corners and pinholes from editorial use, the photo looks great!
