Kid Nichols Large Hand Colored Photograph Signed on the Verso
One of the most adored pieces in the collection from those who have seen it. Stunning, approximately 18"x12" photograph in its original 21"x16" gold leaf frame shows a young "Kid" before he ravaged the batters of the bigs. Likely dates previous to his major league career, it is a cardboard photograph that has been delectably hand colored. Frame has chipping and matte should be changed (and photo de-acidfied), but the image is in marvelous condition (EX-MT). The frame's cardboard backing has been signed in ink,"Charles 'Kid' Nichols as a Young Man". Interesting how he refers to himself in the third person, the same as today's headstrong athletes.
