Fellow Hall of Famers Fred Clarke (Pirates) and Hughie Jennings (Tigers) chat with umpires during the 1909 World Series in this 5" x 7" news service photo from Paul Thompson. Shot at Forbes Field sometime during Game 1, 2, or 5, the player-managers Clarke and Jennings are accompanied by pitcher Bill Donovan leaning into the conversation on the right. Donovan did start, go the distance, and win Game 2 which may provide a clue as to when exactly this image was captured. There is a blue editorial notation within the top border of this photo and the top left corner has a small curl along with a pinhole. Verso includes The Ring stamping along with Paul Thompson's large news photo service stamp. A handwritten inscription identifies the umpires as Silk O'Loughlin and Jim Johnstone. Photo is fresh to the hobby and originates from the archives of Photo File, Inc. where it has been stored for several decades until this offering. Guaranteed Type 1.
