Photo of Casey Stengel as a member of the New York Giants, circa 1922. Certified as an original Type 1 photograph by PSA/DNA. The photo captures Stengel holding a bat as he poses for the camera at the Polo Grounds. An oval Keystone View Co. Inc. of N. Y. credit stamp appears on the reverse. The attached paper news caption reads "Stengel - Giant Outfielder who is making quite a record this year." Although no year is listed, Stengel only played with the Giants from 1921 to 1923. Given the caption, we can only assume it dates from the 1922 season, when Stengel, who was at the tail end of his career, posted a career-high .368 batting average. The photo (6.5 x 8.5 inches) displays minor paper residue and light staining in the upper right corner and a few light surface wrinkles. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
