Higher-grade example featuring the popular Ping Bodie, nicknamed for the sound his bat made when it hit the baseball.  Known for his eating prowess, Bodie participated in a 1919 publicity stunt that had him face off with an ostrich in a spaghetti-eating contest.  Bodie won after the ostrich passed out.  The strangest auction description I've ever written, but the card is truly beautiful, sharp with a crystal clear image centered just to the right on the canvas.  A very desirable card.
