Description



Lots of big names are associated with this c.1925 press photo of Ty Cobb and Hughie Jennings. In addition to the pair of HOFer subjects, the other big names involved are noted on the reverse in the form of a credit stamp for famed sports photographer William Kuenzel of the Detroit News and a proprietary stamp for leading publisher The Sporting News. This antique 8x10 news service photograph features Cobb in his Detroit Tigers uniform, while Jennings is seen in a New York Giants uniform, which he wore as the team's manager during the period 1924-1925. Moderate wear including a crease at the top right corner is noted and both the obverse and reverse bear professional editorial notations. Gloss is abundant, the subject images are distinct and overall the photo remains visually impressive, reporting in (GD-VG) condition. A "Sporting News Collection" hologram sticker is affixed to the reverse.
