    Description

    1916 John McGraw & Christy Mathewson News Photograph. Two Big Apple legends meet for the first time as warring generals. The caption on verso tells the story: "They are now both managers, one an old hand at the tiller and a winner of many pennants, the other just breaking in as a pilot of the Cincinnati Reds." Though the stamped date on verso is Aug 28, 1916, the mention of a recent "Matty Day" would suggest the photo was actually snapped a month earlier, just after the historic trade that sent the Hall of Fame pitcher to the Reds where he would be installed as the team's skipper, fulfilling a longstanding ambition. This fine original Type 1 shot is trimmed of its side borders to final dimensions of 6x8", but is otherwise free of any condition issues.
