Tiightly cropped 3.5" x 4.5" portrait photograph of "The Grey Eagle," Tris Speaker. Tonal quality of the image is exemplary, with editorial masking flanking the centerfielder's face. This masking would have been applied by a publication, effectively removing the background of the image in preparation for print. Notations on verso appear above a "Sporting News Collection" hologram and paper remnants remain affixed, suggesting this photo had been previously mounted. Includes full LOA from PSA/DNA.
Note: further research has revealed this photo is in-fact tightly cropped from a much larger image attributed to Charles Martin Conlon. This is, of course, of the utmost importance to photo collectors and the title of this listing has been adjusted from our printed catalog to reflect that fact.
