Collection of four 6.5" x 8.5" Type 1 photos featuring the New York Giants, all of which served as the source images for E120 American Caramel baseball cards in 1922 (cards shown for illustration purposes only and are not included). Group includes: Art Nehf, Goldie Rapp, Earl Smith, and Curtis Walker. There is some minor waviness to the top and bottom edges which is typical for news service photos of the era. Scattered wear is present across the group, mostly impacting the corners with minor folds/creasing. Nehf is missing a large portion of the upper-left corner and Smith has a piece missing from the bottom border. Verso of all photos remain largely clean, with crisp International News stamping. Rapp also includes a full paper caption. 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.
