This quartet of matching 4x5 acetate negatives deliver striking, high-quality portraits of Ty Cobb, Eddie Collins, Rogers Hornsby and Ollie Bejma. Image areas rate EX-MT/NM with typical minor wear in the surrounding margins. All feature handwritten name captions directly on the negative. Although Ty Cobb's uniform style can be pinpointed to the 1920-26 period, Bejma only played in the 1930s and acetate negatives were more common then. Also included are the weathered original envelopes, which correctly notate Bejma and Collins, but incorrectly identify the names "Fohl Lee" and "Johnson" on the other two examples.
