1939 Photograph of the first class of baseball Hall of Famers gathered together in Cooperstown to open the now iconic museum. While a slightly different angle than the iconic photo, this is a much rarer version from this famous day capturing Babe Ruth front and center and surrounded by other iconic superstars of the game. Images of this group are among the most coveted in the hobby and this is the ONLY Type 1 of this photograph we know of in the world. Stamped on the back by Acme and with a full paper caption as well, this is a high grade specimen that is being offered here for the first time ever!
