1920's Vintage studio photograph of Andrew "Rube" Foster, the father of Negro League baseball, as he posed in a New Orleans studio for perhaps his most famous photo ever taken. Foster loved this photo himself and gave this pose to friends and family throughout his career. This particular example is from the late 1920's and developed on mat finish, double weight paper (similar to the paper used by George Burke in the early 1930's). The photo has editorial painting from being in a newspaper archive and has been slightly trimmed for editorial use, but otherwise it presents really well. This is the first example of this photograph we have ever handled or offered for sale!
