1941 Homestead Grays Team Photograph

Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $1,035.00

Original photograph (7 ½" x 9 ½") captures the 1941 Homestead Grays Negro National League Champions in a traditional team pose. This team includes Buck Leonard, Jud Wilson, Vic Harris, and Johnny Wright. This is a professional presentation photo, as opposed to a wire photo, almost certainly produced exclusively for the players, with the ink stamp and address of Washington-based Jones Photo Service on reverse. Corner tack holes, small border chips, a tear at bottom with tape repair on reverse, players neatly identified on photo with ink. Despite faults, still a rare and striking original photograph, with flawless contrast, of the 1941 Homestead Grays, Champions of the Negro League. From the estate of Buck Leonard. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $1,035.00
