A gorgeous original portrait photograph of Tigers Hall of Fame first baseman, Hank Greenberg – the presented image will be instantly recognizable to collectors as the source material for Greenberg's 1936 Goudey card. Shot in 1934, one year removed from Greenberg's first MVP season of 1935. Photo remains bright front and back with wonderful tonal contrast and negligible wear throughout. Remnants of a paper caption are affixed to verso below Associated Press stamping, identifying them as the issuing service. Measures 5" x 7". Encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.  Included with the photo are two 1936 Goudey Wide Pen cards and a modern reprint of Greenberg's 1936 Goudey standard card, all of which utilize this image.
