Amazing Grover Cleveland Alexander Photo From Paul Thompson (Baseball Magazine Archive)

Amazing Grover Cleveland Alexander Photo From Paul Thompson (Baseball Magazine Archive)

Simply amazing photograph of pitching immortal Grover Cleveland Alexander. One of the finest known photos of “Pete”, taken during his phenomenal early years with the Phillies (1911-1917) by early sports photographer Paul Thompson. A control pitcher with a great fastball and sharp curve, Alexander won 30 games for three straight years with the Phillies, including 16 shutouts in 1916, still a Major League record. Alexander was known for his graceful, effortless delivery, which is captured perfectly in this image, as he follows through, intently watching the just-released ball sail home. Just outstanding! Black and white, 6 1/2” x 8 1/2”; reverse has Paul Thompson studio stamp. Photo from Baseball Magazine Archives, with their authenticating hologram on reverse. Condition is NRMT with a miniscule corner chip the only defect .
