    1939 Ted Williams & Jimmie Foxx Type I News Photograph. As one legend was winding down his career, another was just in his first season. The year was 1939 and Jimmie Foxx had about two more good years ahead of him. But Ted Williams, the Boston Red Sox rookie, was turning in a stat line of .327 - 31 HR -145 RBI on 185 hits. A stellar freshman season by any standards.

    The offered type I original photograph offers a nice image of "Double X" and "The Splendid Splinter" together in the dugout. The 8x10" photo includes news clippings and dates on the verso, but does not offer any clues as to the news agency credit. A few wrinkles, creases and stains are to be expected on editorially used vintage photos, and does not diminish the value of this early Williams piece.
