    Description

    1925 Ross Youngs Photograph. Born in Shiner, Texas, Youngs was just seventeen years old when he made his professional debut with the Austin Senators of the Texas League in 1914, ultimately working his way into the Majors with a late-season start for the 1917 New York Giants. He would call the Polo Grounds home for the entirety of his Major League career, one tragically cut short by a diagnosis of a serious kidney disorder known today as Bright's Disease. Just over a year past his final appearance in a two to nothing victory over the Chicago Cubs, Youngs succumbed to his illness at age thirty.

    The offered 5.25x10" photograph is a cropped portrait of Youngs. Moderate wear exhibited wit ha clipped upper left corner and some staining. Reverse features a plethora of notations and is dated "MAY 2 1925."


    Guide Value or Estimate: $100 - up.
