Fantastic grouping of four 6.5" x 8.5" Type 1 news service photos, all of which served as the source images for baseball cards (cards shown for illustration purposes only and are not included). Group contains Babe Adams (image used for E120), George Cutshaw (image used for E120, 1922 Exhibits), Whitey Glazner (image used for E120, W575-1), and James Tierney (image used for E120, 1922 Exhibits).

Each photo shows light scattered wear and pinholes around the white borders. Crop marks have been applied in pencil to Menosky's photo and all players themselves have been outlined with grease pencil to some degree to further separate them from the backgrounds. Three of the four photos include paper tags with a date of 05/20/21 while verso of all display stamping from International, identifying them as the issuing service. These photos 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. Guaranteed Type 1.
