Original photo taken by noted baseball photographer Paul Thompson. The image captures Cleveland Indians player/manager Tris Speaker posing with Brooklyn Robins manager Wilbert Robinson prior to the first game of the 1920 World Series at Ebbets Field. Paul Thompson's proprietary stamp appears on the reverse, as does an affixed paper news caption, which reads "Left to right - Tris Speaker (Cleveland) and Mgr., Robinson of Brooklyns. - 1st game, World's Series."
The photo (10 x 8 inches) displays a few minor border and corner creases, a small tear along the bottom border, and a small chip in the lower left corner. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
