Rabbit Maranville 1921 Photo – with the Image Used for His 1922 E120 Card.
Lot 379. Rabbit Maranville 1921 Photo – with the Image Used for His 1922 E120 Card. The image in this 6.5” x 8.5” sepia photo was used also to produce Maranville’s American Caramel card. A partial caption found on the back of another copy of the photo indicates it is from May 20, 1921. The catcher’s glove and hand in the photo do not appear in the card. Printed on relatively thin photographic paper, the photo has multiple light creases and a couple of heavier corner creases. With a copy of the card, it will make an especially interesting display item. (A photocopy of the card is in our online presentation and will accompany the photo.) Playing second base and shortstop, Walter James Vincent “Rabbit” Maranville had a Hall of Fame career in the 1920s-30s with the Braves, Pirates, Cubs, Robins and Cardinals. Winning Bid $61.
