Incredible snapshot depicting Hall of Fame pitcher, Charles Wilbur "Bullet" Rogan front and center. Research indicates this photo was removed from a scrapbook for authentication by PSA and the scrapbook page included a handwritten date of May 15, 1929. That page also identified other Kansas City Monarchs players in this image including Chet Brewer, Tom Young, and Newt Joseph, along with Roosevelt Davis of the St. Louis Stars. A fairly large piece of the photographic emulsion is missing from the central image and a fair amount of scrapbook residue remains affixed to verso. Photo measures 2.75" x 4.25" and has been encapsulated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
