1907 Completely original early photograph of Hall of Famer Willie Keeler in uniform and striking his most famous batting pose that shows how high he chokes up on the bat to be able to place the ball perfectly. While the photo has some angular trimming from a newspaper archive, this could be cleaned up a bit but we have elected to leave it exactly as it sat in a newspaper archive in Cleveland for over one hundred years. The photo is clean and clear, absolutely a Type 1 from PSA and a touch of creasing at the upper left corner is the only thing keeping it from a near perfect grade. By far this is the finest image of Keeler on a baseball field that exists and it is being presented here for the first time ever!
