    Description

    Circa 1910 Napoleon Lajoie Original News Photograph by Paul Thompson, PSA/DNA Type 1. He was so beloved by his adopted Cleveland hometown that they named the team for him. The leader of the Naps warms up pre-game in this shot by one of the most skilled and collectible lensmen of the Dead Ball Era, whose stamp appears on verso along with a penciled "Lajoie Cleveland" notation, presumably in Thompson's hand. A diagonal crease well clear of the central focus is apparent only at certain angles to the light, otherwise the appearance is NRMT despite a lower technical grade. Image measures 6x7.75". One of the finest images of this inaugural class Hall of Famer we've encountered, the perfect complement to a quality autograph. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
