From an important Negro League collection comes this extraordinary famous image, printed with perfect balance, resolution and clarity. This Type II was printed perhaps 10 years later for promotional purposes and depicts a stunning batting stance with an expression of grim determination behind a handsome and fine profile, as Josh Gibson is pictured on this 8x10." "GRAYS" is on his Jersey, and you can see the people of color in the stands. Originally taken in the 1940s, this is one of the best photos of Josh Gibson we have ever seen. Condition is EX+.
