Jimmie Foxx

RARE Original 1928 Wire Photo


The world's second great home run hitter was Jimmie Foxx.

After Babe Ruth, he got to 500 homers next, in 1940. Foxx came up as a catcher before moving to first base, and in this ultra-rare photo his glove itself appears to be making the transition while on his hand. Call it a XX-File.

Most archive photos of Foxx show him late in his career with the Red Sox. This picture, from 1928 shows him at the age of 20 with the Philadelphia Athletics. For the next three the Yankees would play second-fiddle to the Philadelphia powerhouse led by Foxx and Lefty Grove, who many believe to be the greatest left-handed pitcher of all time.

Size: 7x9" (slightly trimmed).
