Description

A pair of pre-war Hall of Famers are the focus of the offered 1911 Police Gazette supplement featuring Honus Wagner and Roger Bresnahan. This black and white beauty is lightly affixed to a contemporary matte and has dimensions of 17-1/2 x 14. The surface reveals light wrinkling throughout and contains a moderate contusion just left of the caption Ready For The Wallop. This ephemeron is free of any dates or numbering. According to the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards, it is one of four baseball-related pieces released in 1911 and is supposed to bear the number 1782 on the surface. The action sequence is poignant and is further accentuated by an early ballpark backdrop.
