Pair of 6.5" x 8.5" Type 1 photos featuring Lloyd Christenbury and Walton Cruise of the Boston Braves. Both images served as the source material for baseball cards during the early 1920's with Lloyd Christenbury's example featured in the V100 Willard's Chocalates series and Walton Cruise appearing as a 1921 Exhibit card (cards shown for illustration purposes only and are not included). There is some waviness to the top and bottom edges of these photos which is common to the era. Both photos include full paper captions on verso and are particularly clean and bright with just a curl to the lower left corner of Christenbury worthy of note. 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.
