1927 Photograph of Philadelphia Athletics catcher Cy Perkins as he catches a baseball and the camera is snapped at just the moment so that the ball itself is caught in mid air (with a tail behind it) unlike any photograph before. Innovations were making it possible to actually have shutter speeds that enabled photographers to capture true action photographs and this is one of the first out there! Issued by Pacific and Atlantic and stamped on the back.
