Grouping of 8 photographs spotlighting members of the infamous 1919 Chicago White Sox. Six of the presented photos are portrait shots, including Hall of Fame catcher Wally Schang. Black Sox conspirator Fred McMullin is included, though his horizontal photo is slightly out of focus due to movement while the image was shot. All measure approx. 5" x 7" and are clean aside from Byrd Lynn, who has some editorial masking applied to the left side. Pinholes are present to all four corners of the Murphy portrait and Lynn. Pinholes also appear near three of the four corners of Wally Schang's photo. N.Y. Sun stamping appears on verso of all photos which are bright white aside from both Murphy and Lynn which both exhibit light staining. 

Players included: Joe Jenkins, Ted Jourdan, Byrd Lynn, Eddie Murphy (2), Fred McMullen, Reb Russell, Ray Schalk (HOF). All are fresh to the hobby and originate from the archives of Photo File, Inc. where they have been stored for several decades until this offering.
