CHUCK KLEIN Personal 1936 Original Photo - Image used for the R332 Goudey Card
- Source: eBay
From the CHUCK KLEIN ESTATE !
Offered is a Vintage 1935 ORIGINAL Photo of Chuck Klein that originates from the collection of his family estate. This 5" x 7" features the portrait image that was selected the following year by the famous Goudey Gum Co. for use in the Boston-based company's 1936 baseball card set, the R332 1936 Goudey ! The photo was consigned to us by Chuck Torpey, the nephew of Hall of Famer Chuck Klein (along with several other pieces from the family's collection). The photo itself is a TYPE I period specimen and was taken and issued by Acme Newspictures on September 26, 1935 when the Chicago Cubs were preparing for the 1935 World Series. The photo has the original Acme credit stamp and there are traces of photo album remnants on the reverse. Being made from the original negative as opposed to a printed image, the obverse features a razor SHARP Klein portrait that is obviously superior to any Goudey card ever made. COA signed by Torpey is included with this "One-of-a-Kind" example !
