    Circa 1905 Carl Horner Baseball Photography Lot of 4. The most collectible photographer of the Dead Ball Era was Boston-based lensman Horner, whose images populate many of the early tobacco and candy card sets of the day. Here we provide four examples of his fine work. Three are images reproduced in the famous T204 issue: Jimmy Sheckard (Superbas), Charlie Hemphill (Browns), Doc Crandall (Giants). Finally, as pictured in the E107-1 issue, Danny Murphy (Athletics). Each image measures approximately 3.5x5.5" and bears the Horner studio imprint at lower right corner. Three are stamped "Horner-Jordan Co." on verso, while fourth (Sheckard) is affixed to a cardboard mount. All have "Baseball Magazine" archives sticker on verso. Crandall exhibits vertical bend near left edge, Hemphill some mild surface wear, otherwise all Fine.
