c. 1909 Extremely early photograph of young Eddie Collins from the Philadelphia Athletics. The young superstar is pictured from the genesis of his career, in uniform and wearing his awesome team issued warm-up sweater. He is flashing a cocky grin that would come to symbolize his polarizing look on the diamond. From the archives of Underwood and Underwood and offered here for the first time ever, the photo exhibits exceptional quality but has a couple creases from news-room handling. One of the best images of Collins from the start of his career we have ever seen!
