1910s Type 1 Photo of Pittsburgh’s Babe Adams by Noted Baseball Photographer Paul Thompson.

Lot 378. 1910s Type 1 Photo of Pittsburgh’s Babe Adams by Noted Baseball Photographer Paul Thompson. Like Charles Conlon, Thompson was important in the development of baseball photography and its contribution to capturing the sport’s history. After graduating from Yale University in 1901, he joined the staff of the “New York Evening Sun” as a reporter and became sports editor. From 1908-29 in New York City, he owned and managed a business that provided news photographs; baseball was among the topics covered. Thompson was responsible for many of the portraits used in the T205 1911 baseball card set. His photos are infrequently offered. This 6.5” x 8.5” photo of Adams has a stamp on the back that Thompson used primarily in the 1910s. Adams’ uniform and other similar photos indicate the photo is from 1918. There is a chip and a small tear in the upper left corner, a very small chip on the lower left corner and a couple of minor creases. After appearing in one game for St. Louis in 1906, Adams pitched for Pittsburgh in 18 seasons. He won at least 20 games twice and concluded his career with a 194-140 record for a .581 winning percentage. Winning Bid $83.
