1927 Zack Wheat Baseball HOF Philadelphia Athletics Charles Conlon Original TYPE 1 photo PSA LOA

1927 Portrait photo of Hall of Famer Zack Wheat (measures 6.5” x  8.5” in size) in full uniform and warm up jacket from the Philadelphia Athletics. Stamped on the back (“The Ring, Inc” – from their archives) One of the toughest Hall of Famers from the era to find quality images of with this being right up there with the best. A tough team to find Wheat pictured in as well with this being a perfect 10/10 from Charles Conlon! Charles Conlon (1886-1945) was America's first sports photojournalist. In the primitive days of photography, he lugged his camera to the ballpark to capture the heroes of the game in their natural setting and paved the way for a new genre of photography. His work encompassed four decades and he became a true master of his craft. His images range from aging 19th century stars through the golden age of the game and most of the iconic baseball photographs of the early 20th century originate from the camera of Conlon. Due to the nature of his employment, images from Conlon are quite rare to find.
