Desirable c.1910's original Lefty Williams photograph from the lens of Charles Martin Conlon. Williams won 23 games for baseball's most infamous team, the 1919 Chicago White Sox, and remains one of eight players history remembers as the "Black Sox" for conspiring to throw the 1919 World Series. Though acquitted at pubic trail, Williams and his co-conspirators were permanently banned from organized baseball for life in 1921 by then-commissioner Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis. 8" x 10" photo displays varying degrees of wear to corners but any imperfections remain within the white borders. Conlon has added his handwritten identifier of Williams in pencil at the top of verso along with a "Conlon Photo" signature below. Both Charles Conlon's personal credit stamping and a Sporting News stamp have also been applied, with an obvious vertical stain appearing at center. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
