1910s Baseball Stars, Photographed by George Grantham Bain

George Bain was a full time New York photographer in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Originally working for United Press, he formed the 'Bain News Service' in 1898. Amongst advanced collectors of early baseball photographs Bain is well known. Bain's original photographs, which are often snapshot sized (small) with cool and steely tones, often have the Bain News Service stamp on back. As the news service went out of business and Bain himself died in the first half of the 20th century, the existance of this stamp on the back is siginificant towards identifying a photo as an original.
