    Description

    1912 Honus Wagner Original News Photograph by Bain, PSA/DNA Type 1. We've never encountered this image before but it has quickly established itself as one of our favorites picturing the Hall of Fame shortstop. Wagner's massive and heavily veined forearms emerge from the sleeves of this unique single-season uniform style during a campaign that saw the Old Dutchman narrowly lose National League MVP honors to Giants star Larry Doyle. Stamping on verso assigns creation to George Grantham Bain, one of the most accomplished and collectible photographers of the sport's Dead Ball Era. Image measures 4x4.5" and presents without any condition caveats of note. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
