Not only was Urban Shocker a near-perennial 20-game winner, a member of the vaunted '27 Yankees, and, yes, one of the best names in baseball history, he was also a tragic figure who died in his prime, succumbing to complications of heart disease in 1928. Here, Shocker and Walter Johnson share an intimate dugout handshake at Griffith Stadium. The pair is captured in profile with the nice touch of Johnson's left arm akimbo and Shocker's left arm in his pocket. The 8x10 Acme Newspictures photo appears to be Type I and displays routine minor peripheral wear from newsroom usage.
