    1913 John Henry "Pop" Lloyd Studio Photograph. "I am honored to have John Lloyd called the Black Wagner," Honus was once quoted as saying. "It is a privilege to have been compared to him." The Hall of Fame Negro League superstar of the Dead Ball Era is captured here in one of the few vintage portraits to have survived the decades since. He wears the uniform of the New York Lincoln Giants, a team he would represent from 1911 through 1914, and again for the last five years of the 1920's. The sepia-toned image is marvelously rendered, with slight emulsion loss to Lloyd's cap and the area to the right of his head. The upper right edge of the photo has some minor paper loss that could easily be matted out. There are otherwise no noteworthy flaws. Studio's "Aveda" stamping is found at Lloyd's left knee, and again on verso. 5.75x8" in size.
