Note that George Kelly's photo is missing a piece from the bottom border. Players included: Jessie Barnes, Clancy (unknown player), Bill Cunningham, Alex Gaston, Heinie Groh, Bud Heine (1 career game), George Kelly (HOF), Art Nehf, Johnny Rawlings, Rosy Ryan, Red Shea, Ralph Shinners, Earl Smith (2 different), Frank Snyder. 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.
