15-year major league veteran Dode Paskert appeared for three National League clubs in his career with the Reds (1907-10, 1921), Phillies (1911-17), and Cubs (1918-20). Paskert is perhaps best known for his range as a center fielder, responsible for one of the greatest catches witnessed during the Deadball Era - a diving barehand snare off the bat of New York Giant Fred Snodgrass. This occurred on April 13, 1911, one day before the fire that completely destroyed the grandstand at the Polo Grounds which forced the Giants to move into Hilltop Park until June. The presented 8x10 photograph features an image captured in 1911 while the Phillies visited the Giants at their aforementioned temporary home on the hilltop in Upper Manhattan. Surface of this 8" x 10" photo exhibits a large heavy crease running from the top edge across Paskert's left elbow to the right edge. Creasing can also be found in the lower right and left corners. Minor smudging is present on verso which includes Charles Conlon's personal stamping along with Conlon's handwritten identification of Paskert. 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.
