One of these, Chick Fewster, is the typical scenario of Conlon's handwritten caption and personal blue stamping. Then there are two Bill Wambsganss photos from 1921-22 whose connection to Conlon comes solely from a small notation of his surname. (Another penciled notation in the same hand features this tremendous historical content: "Billy Wambsganss, Cleveland second sacker, who turned in the only unassisted triple play in World Series history in game with Brooklyn, 1920.") The fourth photo picturing Sherry Smith is actually not by Conlon, but rather one of his esteemed colleagues George Dorrill, whose stamping appears on the reverse. Dimensions are 6-1/2" x 8-1/2" to 8" x 10". Smith shows the heaviest newsroom handling wear, while the other three images must be examined under a bright light in order to see the expected minor wrinkling.
