One of two 8" x 10" Charles Conlon photos of Russ Ford in this auction (the other a pitching shot) and simply a fantastic look at Ford in full-swing as we're treated to a close-up of his sledgehammer of a baseball bat. Some further research would have to be done but we believe this image may have been captured in Jersey City at the Jersey City Skeeters ballpark where Ford called home in 1909. Photo is in superb overall condition with a very small chip to the upper left corner and a light tear about Ford's cap. Verso exhibits minor toning along the edges and features Charles Conlon's personal stamping, Conlon's handwritten identification of Ford, and a few additional handwritten notations. 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.
