1934 Famous photograph of Hall of Famer Carl Hubbell from the New York Giants as he leans back against a fence at the Polo Grounds and has his picture taken in uniform. This is the image that was used to create his popular 1934-36 Diamond Stars baseball card and is the only full example that we have ever handled. The quality of the photograph is exceptional and clean, clearly off the original negative, and the photo bears stamps on the back from Underwood and Underwood that are correct for the 1930's! There is some light handling at the corners from editorial use, but otherwise it presents really well. Offered here for the first time ever!
