Guaranteed Type 1 (7.25" x 9"). 2) Portrait of White Sox manager, Kid Gleason who helmed the Sox from 1919-23. Obvious wear to corners otherwise presents quite well.

Full LOA from PSA/DNA. 4) Large format photo of diminutive outfielder, Nemo Leibold.Excellent condition with some emulsion loss within top border. Includes full paper caption and date stamping from Sep, 29, 1919, just prior to the World Series which began on Oct 1. Guaranteed Type 1 (8" x10"). 5) Tightly cropped photo of Hall of Fame umpire, Billy Evans. Central image remains superbly crisp and well protected by the large outer borders. Paul Thompson credit stamping on verso with inscription referencing Evans' presence at the 1919 World Series.
