This unique posed photo in front of what appears to be a clothing store features the Tigers' three biggest stars of the era, and another unidentified person, who most likely was not a baseball player. Perhaps he encountered the players while walking down the street and asked to have a photo taken with them! The photo subjects are (left to right) Fumio Fujimura, Tadashi Wakabayashi, unknown person and Kaoru Betto. We guarantee that the winner of this lot will be the only person in the world who owns this vintage photo.

Size: 4 3/8" x 3 1/8"

Condition: Considerable chipping along the top and bottom borders, not affecting the image of the players. Otherwise Vg/Ex.
