Grouping of two 6.5" x 8.5" press photos from International featuring the source images for both Steve O'Neil and Larry Gardner's 1922 E120 American Caramel baseball cards (cards shown for illustration purposes only and are not included). Both photos are clean and bold aside from a small chip missing from the top border of Gardner's photo with some creasing also in that area. Verso of O'Neil's photo includes paper caption indicating the image was captured during March of 1921 prior to a pre-season game with the NY Giants. Gardner's black armband indicates this photo originates from 1920 as the Indians donned armbands for the remainder of the season following the untimely death of teammate Ray Chapman. International's credit stamping is present on verso of both along with handwritten identifications of each player. 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.
