Noted early autograph collector Jim Armstrong made these period enlargements from original snapshots at spring training, and then he had them signed at a later date. They're on heavy-stock studio paper with reverse notations mostly mentioning Al Lang Field in St. Petersburg. Signatures range from "6-10", and condition is EX with perimeter wear. Some images are blurry either because of the original snapshot or because of the enlargement process.
