    Description


    1921 Rogers Hornsby Hands Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Ruth and Cobb may get all the attention, but this man was the perfect composite of the pair, second to the Georgia Peach in career batting average (.359), but more than doubling his home run tally (301). These are the hands that led Rajah to join those men in the inaugural class of the Baseball Hall of Fame. Image measures 8.5x6.5" with minimal wear on obverse and "International" stamping on verso. Also on verso is sticker indicating the photo was sold as part of the Baseball Magazine archives auction a couple decades ago. Portion of tattered original paper caption is present but detached. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
