There are several notable details here. For starters, the crystal-clear focus of the grass and Wagner's stirrups and cleats clearly signals Type I quality. Then, in an unusual touch, there are editorial embellishments appearing to have been done directly on the negative itself from which this photo was produced—including some shadowing and a fully illustrated glove! A vintage paper caption on the reverse reads, "WAITING FOR A FLY, WAGNER IS ALWAYS READY." Well-preserved with a few peripheral lines of crazing. Culver Pictures stampings on reverse.
