Famous Eddie Gadel Bats Vintage Photograph (1951)

Famous Eddie Gadel Bats Vintage Photograph (1951)

Amazing and famous image, Eddie Gadel bats for St. Louis. Rare to find, this is an original first photo, not a re-print, dated August 18, 1951, the day the game was played. As a lark the next day St. Louis signed him on as an amateur free-agent, only to rescind 2 days later. This is an incredible shot of Gadel who at 3'8" and 65 lbs will always be known as the shortest player in Major League history. The 7 x 9.5" image is in EX condition with good color contrast and very minor wrinkling.
