Default Iconic Baseball Photos of the 20th Century

I was looking for an image of Nolan Ryan the other day when I came across his famous bloody lip photo (made possible by Bo). I personally can't think of any other image of Ryan that is as iconic as that one (Ventura in a headlock is a close 2nd IMO LOL). Anyways, It got me thinking about what were some of the most the iconic baseball photos that have been produced in the 20th century. Here are some that came to mind. Let me know what I'm missing as I'd love to see some wonderful images.

Default The Shot...

He certainly did, Scott! He was insistent that the Giants weren't stealing signals, but...

He always claimed that he was the photographer of that photo. Not that anyone didn't believe him, but I think perhaps he felt that he needed to prove it. Eventually, the author of Echoing Green helped him out. A (circa) 1952-53 Sylvania Flash Bulbs brochure turned up with this photo, crediting my grandfather.

Then, after the passing of a relative in NYC, while cleaning out her apartment - the original photo and the negatives were found. My grandfather was so excited. He passed away shortly thereafter.

Really glad to hear that he was able to get credited for it and find the photo and negatives while he was alive. A lot of people could claim they were there when that happened, but to be able to be the one to capture one of the most events in baseball history is off the charts. I'll never look at that photo again without thinking about the story you just shared. Thanks for posting that!
