Unusual 5" x 7.25" news service photograph of Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer Tris Speaker seated at his typewriter, presumably in the off-season. The top left corner of this photo has been trimmed away but this does not intrude on the central image which features some wonderful hand-painting done to outline/separate Tris from the background and highlight details of his work shirt. There are hand-written notations on verso, including a date of 10/02/12 which was one day before the third-to-last game of the season and two weeks before the Red Sox defeated the Giants in the 1912 World Series.
