    Description

    Circa 1904 Roger Bresnahan Signed Cabinet Photograph by Carl Horner. Roger Bresnahan signed with the New York Giants in July of 1902. The next year he was a subject of renowned photographer Carl Horner. Offered elsewhere in this auction is a cabinet card with that photo - the personal copy of Bresnahan - and we believe this portrait could have been done from that same session. Bresnahan is looking sharp and more than ready to hit the New York social scene in the finest formal attire of the era. As we have come to expect from a Horner image, the 4x5.5" portrait is of the highest quality and detail. The photo is adhered against a thick 5x7" card mount displaying the distinctive "Carl Horner" logo. Reverse is autographed in pencil "Roger Bresnahan N.Y.B.B.C." and directed in Bresnahan's hand to "Roger 12-26-04." The photo shows some surface soiling and a minimal amount of surface scratches. The mount shows only some light edge wear. Letter of provenance from the Bresnahan family. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
