Dramatic c. 1910 action photograph of Honus Wagner from the Pittsburgh Pirates as he slides violently into home to score. One of the better action photographs from the era, the figure of Wagner is clearly visible and the umpire is about to motion the batter is safe at the plate. This was issued in 1934 as part of a retrospective titled "Sport Parade" which we have seen before, but not this pose of Wagner which is a first for us. The condition is nice with a slight trim at the top from use in a newspaper archive.
