Profile image of infamously corrupt bad-boy of baseball, Hal Chase as shot by Paul Thompson's news photo service, likely in 1910. This 5x7 photo captures the man during the middle of his tenure with the New York Highlanders (1905-1913) before he was traded away to the Chicago White Sox, eventually becoming one of the Federal Leagues biggest names with the 1914 Buffalo Feds. Verso of photo includes Paul Thompson stamping which has been obscured by brown tape. This image served as the basis for Chase's 1911 T332 Helmar stamp. 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. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
