Original, one of a kind, from the camera, glass plate negative depicts Hall of Famer John McGraw in action. Though inducted to Cooperstown largely on the strength of his managerial success, McGraw was also a prolific player, appearing in 1,100 career games with a .334 batting average, and he is shown patrolling third base in this circa 1910 negative. Another gem from the extensive Brown Brothers photo archive.
