Michigan native Charlie Gehringer served as the model of consistency during parts of 19 seasons with the Detroit Tigers. A .320 career hitter, "The Mechanical Man" eclipsed the .300 mark no less than 13 times. This 8" x 10" depiction features faint Charles M. Conlon and "The Sporting News" stampings – along with pencil notations -- on its back. "The Sporting News," which still exists today was founded in 1886 by Alfred H. Spink and became the preeminent American Publication covering baseball. This photograph came directly from the archives of the "Sporting News" and has been designated as such by the official Sporting News hologram that has been adhered to the reverse. This original hologram assures its provenance as being acquired directly from this historic archive.
