Early superstar and present day Hall-of-Famer "Sliding" Billy Hamilton is doing his pinata-bashing best with the comically suspended baseball in the "Strike, Looking Up At Ball Pose" also known as 210-2 in the long N172 series.  Strike?  Well, the good news is the image on this VG-graded example is a strong one, well-reproduced with image clarity and contrast far above average for the issue.  You can make out the fine detail on the quilting of Hamilton's sliding pads and be mesmerized by the strange, snaking white object just beyond his left foot. There's rounding to the corners and a small, round "out" in the upper right border while the reverse has just a couple small spots of foxing-it's one of the nicer examples you'll ever see.
