Detroit Tigers platoon player Davy Jones shared the outfield with Hall of Fame teammates Ty Cobb and Sam Crawford for seven seasons spanning the years of 1906-1912. Here, he's been captured by photographer Charles Conlon warming up on the sidelines with one of those Tigers squads prior to a game at Hilltop Park in New York against the Highlanders. Photo measures 8" x 10" and central image presents beautifully though there is scattered wear including a heavy crease to the bottom right corner. The upper right corner is missing which is not uncommon for these photos as they were handled repeatedly in a working press room over 100 years ago. 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.
