Lot 985: Stunning color satin-finish 10 x 13.5 photo of Williams taken in 1939, signed in blue felt tip by Williams and black felt tip by the photographer, Arthur Griffin. Blindstamped by Griffin in the lower left corner. Attractively double-matted and framed to an overall size of 17 x 21. In fine condition. Griffin was testing color film in 1939—Williams's rookie season—when he photographed the young ballplayer at Fenway Park. Since newspapers were still black-and-white, he filed the negatives away and they were forgotten for fifty years. These were the first color images ever taken of Williams, and this is an absolutely wonderful example signed by both subject and photographer.
