1925 Photograph of Jimmy O'Connell, one of the top prospects in baseball a few years earlier as he was regulated to manual labor after being banished from the game for gambling. A poignant image in the wake of the Black Sox scandal, O'Connell is one of the last ballplayers to ever receive a lifetime ban. Issued by Wide World Photos and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
