1929 Large and famous portrait photograph of Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby. This is an image we have seen reproduced often but never in original form. Stamped on the back by Underwood and Underwood, this is clear and bold with some light soiling and handling wear from being almost 100 years old. There is a very slight rip on the far right which has been repaired with tape and is hard to see as well as some light editorial marks from publication. The photo looks better in person that the technical grade. One of the greatest images of Hornsby ever taken!
