A veritable Who's Who of then-living legends, this gathering centers on Connie Mack and Ty Cobb smiling and shaking hands front and center with Joe Louis looming above. They are joined by Chuck Klein, Red Grange, Jack Kelly, Jimmy Foxx, Frank Baker, Dave Bancroft, Mickey Cochrane, Tris Speaker, Lefty Grove and Willie Hoppe. All names are notated on the reverse, along with the event details: "Phila. Sports Writers 50th Annual Dinner At Broadwood Hotel / January 25th, 1954." Displayed within a 14x10 matte, the 10-1/4 x 6-1/4" visible area is apparent VG-EX with a small surface wrinkle touching Cobb's face. Overall image quality is exceptional with great focus and contrast.
