Special grouping of three approx. 5" x 7" Type 1 news service photos featuring members of the Boston Red Sox, all of which served as source images for E120 American Caramel and 1921 exhibit cards (cards shown for illustration purposes only and are not included). Photos feature Mike Menosky (image used for E120), Stuffy McInnis (image used for E120 and 1921 Exhibits), and Everett Scott (image used for 1921 Exhibits). Each example remains fully intact though McInnis and Menosky both suffer from several pinholes scattered around the white border. McInnis and Menosky have been outlined in some places with what appears to be grease pencil in order to further separate them from the background. There is also a 3/8" tear by McInnis' right foot. 

Verso of Menosky and McInnis both include International paper captions, with Menosky also featuring International stamping in blue. Handwritten notations appear on verso of Scott's photo, both identifying him and indicating the image is from International. 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.
