1926 Bold and clear image of tragic 1927 New York Yankees star pitcher, Urban Shocker, and posed at the ballpark in full uniform. A precise image that shows every wrinkle around his eyes and every single thread on his uniform, this is perhaps his greatest image ever taken. Stamped on the back by Fotograms and with a full paper caption as well, this is a perfect 10/10 that is being offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of a prominent New York newspaper.
