    1939 Baseball Hall of Fame Scroll Vintage Photograph. Four months before the legendary sanctuary of baseball officially opened its doors and honored its inaugural class, photographers were allowed inside for a preview and one from the International News captured this crystal clear image of the Hall of Fame "Scroll", which lists the first fourteen inductees.

    Photograph measures 6.75x8.5" and exhibits moderate war with pinholes in the lower corners and a mild crease running from the top right quadrant to the upper left edge. Original paper caption is attached to the reverse and folded over, it remains in good condition. Reverse features several production markings, a "FEB 20 1939" Central Press Association stamp and an International News Photo Stamp. A beautiful image that would fit in perfectly with any Hall of Fame collection.
