    Early 1900's Roger Bresnahan Photographs Lot of 4. This amazing lot of four photographs of Roger Bresnahan features three pictures in uniform and one portrait. The portrait measures 6x8" (mounted), is dated 1900 on the back, and has a stamp for photographer "H.M. Brown" in Baltimore. An undated photograph of Bresnahan posing with his backstop gear measures 5x7.5" and has been trimmed down slightly. Copyrighted on the verso by "The Pictorial News Co., N.Y.," this is likely from his New York Giants years of 1902 to 1908.

    A 9x12" mounted photo is third up in this collection, showing an unidentified batter with Bresnahan behind the plate and an umpire behind him, ready to make the call. Marked on the back by "Hugh O'Neil, Photographer, 1799 Washington Ave., N.Y.," this is also probably from his Giants period. The final photo is mounted to 8x10" and is marked on the reverse by "H. H. Bregstone Art Works, St. Louis, MO." In this picture, Bresnahan poses from the side in his Cardinals uniform (1909-1911) with hands at hips. All photos average VG to EX with very minor wear and no major damage. Letter of provenance from the Bresnahan family.
