Cool c. 1905 photograph of an American baseball player posed outside with his glove (a rare crescent padded catchers mitt) and standing on a white board for contrast. A cool image that is like a slice of American history! The notation on the back is awesome as it mentions the photo was taken by this players wife while he was practicing for the big game! We did some research and the man was almost certainly Emery Yates Garling of Logan, Ohio who was married in 1905, about the time this photo was taken!
