    Description

    1920's Major League Baseball Player Photographs by Conlon Lot of 9. Neal McCabe, the author of Baseball's Golden Age: The Photographs of Charles M. Conlon, asserts Conlon's status as the greatest baseball photographer of all time, describing his images as "worthy of comparison to the classic works of Southworth and Hawes, Matthew Brady, Julia Margaret Cameron, August Sander and Lewis Hine." The vintage Conlon photos presented in this lot are true original prints, actually developed and printed by Conlon himself. They may be the only known original examples. Conlon's signature and/or stamp can be found on the reverse side of each photo, along with a player identification. All derive from the archives of Baseball Magazine. Presented are Sparky Adams, Vic Aldridge, Clyde Barnhart, Dick Bartell, Lyle Bigbee, Max Bishop, Donie Bush, Ike Boone and George Earnshaw. Some have vintage editing marks upon the image, and all have Baseball Magazine authenticating stickers from the 1996 auction of the archives on verso. Image size ranges from 5x6.5" to 8x10". Condition issues are confined mainly to edge/corner wear and insignificant occasional wrinkles. All would present at EX-MT or better with simple matting and framing.
