1925-26 Large photograph of four members of the New York Americans as they pose with various bandages and injuries for a photographer to illustrate how violent the game of hockey was. Included are early pioneer players Edmond Bouchard, Shorty Green, Billy Burch, and Jake Forbes in full uniform and with their sticks in hand. Dated on the back from the 1925-26 season and in nice shape overall, this is (in our opinion) the greatest hockey image that we have ever handled and it is being offered here for the first time ever. The photo has a few light creases and some editorial remnants, but otherwise it presents really well!
