c. 1903-04 Vintage head to toe photograph of three members of the Cleveland Indians in uniform with young Hall of Famer Napoleon Lajoie prominently pictured at center. One of his better and clearest images we have ever seen from early in his career, and despite being large at one point, the resulting image of Lajoie is exceptional! The other players in the frame are Otto Hess and Bill Bradley, both well known players from the era. The photo has some handling wear but considering the fragile nature of photographic paper from this era, it actually remains here in pretty nice condition! The Indians only wore this uniform in 1903-04!
