Perhaps most famous for reportedly brawling with Ty Cobb in a hotel room during spring training in 1917, infielder Buck Herzog was an integral part of the New York Giants' pennant-winning squads of 1911-1913. Presented here is a head-and-shoulders portrait of the man wearing what we believe to be a 1911 Giants World Series uniform top, though the cap differs. This 8x10 photo features American Press Association news photo service stamping on verso, along with handwritten editorial notations. Lower left corner exhibits heavy chipping with additional chipping to the lower right corner and along right edge. Image background has been lightly touched up with editorial masking, with some residue on Herzog's face, though this does not detract from the attractive central image. This photo is fresh to the hobby and originates from the archives of Photo File, Inc. where it has been stored for several decades until this offering. Guaranteed Type 1.
