Edgar Charles "Sam" Rice enjoyed a 20-year major league career from 1915-1934, emerging as the Washington Senators all-time leader in hits, doubles, triples, and runs scored. Rice helped his Senators capture the only three pennants in franchise history, besting the New York Giants over seven games to seize the 1924 World Series. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee in 1963. A fabulous 6.5" x 8.5" portrait of Rice, the offered original photograph displays exceptionally well, with a small chip to the right border. Verso includes large credit stamping attributing the photo to Henry Miller's news photo service and several smudges, mostly in the form of fingerprints, are scattered throughout. A full paper caption remains affixed along the bottom edge. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
