Original Type I photograph of Hall of Fame second baseman Johnny Evers as a member of the Boston Braves, circa 1915. Evers is pictured gazing into the camera as he stands alongside a few other teammates on the field prior to a game. Two Brown Brothers credit stamps appear on the reverse, along with Evers’ name written in pencil. Evers’ last name was etched onto the top of the negative and therefore appears in white lettering along the top border. Nicknamed the “Human Crab” for his dour personality, Evers joined the Braves in 1914 after twelve stellar seasons in Chicago, where he formed part of the legendary double-play trio “Tinker to Evers to Chance.” Evers enjoyed one of his finest overall seasons in 1914, winning the MVP Award and leading the “Miracle Braves” to their first World Championship of the modern era. Evers played four seasons with the Braves before retiring in 1917. The photo measures 3x5” and displays a few light border creases. VG-EX. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive. PSA encapsulated as Type I Authentic.
