Description

    1906 Art Devlin Cabinet Photograph by Horner, Type 1. The masterful portraiture of this early cabinet photograph would be unmistakably recognizable as the work of Carl Horner, even if this fact wasn't verified by his mark at lower margin. For the uninitiated, Horner rates as baseball's most collectible turn-of-the-century lensman, and the force behind many of the images found on tobacco and candy cards of the era, most notably Honus Wagner's portrait on the million-dollar T206 issue. This razor-sharp shot of New York Giants third baseman Art Devlin can easily be dated to 1906, as he is pictured wearing the style jersey his team sported the season after winning the 1905 championship. Image portion measures at 4x5.5", while its mounted on a 5x7.25" cardboard backing (VG-EX). A magnificent period piece that captures the spirit of the early game like few others can.
