Description

    1936 Jimmie Foxx Original News Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. "He has muscles in his hair." - Lefty Gomez on Jimmie Foxx.

    Jimmie Foxx was twenty-eight-years-old and still in Beast mode in 1936, when this image was taken, batting .338 with forty-one home runs and 143 RBI. Stretching his Boston flannel to its limits, Foxx is seen here warming up his many muscles with his prodigious lumber dipped back over his head. Stunning Chicago Tribune image measures 7.75x9.5" Top right crease and editorial markings prove to be only minor distractions. Full LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.


    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - up.
