ORIGINAL TED WILLIAMS OPENING DAY 1947 DENNIS MICHAEL BREARLEY SEPIA PHOTOGRAPH. This is really a wonderful original. I bought a collection of photographs of Boston sports about 2 years ago and they were hanging in my garage since then. And as this photo was described in the 2013 Hunt auctions sale of the original negative’ Ted Williams, Opening Day 1947. Ted Williams displayed in crisp clarity with striking contrast against the muted background. With note to overall aesthetic this image ranks as one of the finest ever taken of Williams and possibly one of the greatest baseball photographs of all time. It really is an iconic photograph. A wonderful sepia photograph measuring 16 x 20 inches. Overall the photograph is in good condition. There are a few issues. First off, the four corners have holes in them from a previous hanging in a bar. Then you can see the albumen top layer has changed inconsistently from contact with the glass of the original frame. Some areas are shinier and the bottom area is showing slight crinkling and a small couple dots of loss to the surface paper. Just to the right of Williams’ face you can see a slight blemish in the print that looks like it was attempted to be filled in on printing. A few other spots of discoloration but still an excellent example of this iconic photo. On original mount with original Brearley stamp verso. That would mean to me that there will be no additional photos created from the original negative. Dont miss this chance. CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS EXCELLENT PIECE!! If you have any questions regarding the work, please dont hesitate to ask. Pictures are an excellent indication of condition. I guarantee and stand 100% behind everything I sell.
