Carl Horner Question
 
1 Attachment(s)
I love to group my cards into different categories (pose / set / player / team) and I make different PPT pages with them (have another thread about them).

Recently I was making a Carl Horner portrait page with all my cards with his photos and I wanted to put a picture of him on that page but I can't find any photos of him online. Anyone have a photo of Carl Horner? Here is the start to my Horner tribute page (Johnson photo is from Horner right? I think it is the same pose as the Ramly? ) Thanks.

BTW, great piece on Horner:

There is a photo of Horner and his wife on page 232 of the Henry Yee book on baseball photography.

That Matty image is Benjamin Falk and not Horner.

Also, has the Cobb portrait been definitively attributed to Horner?

Hi Jeff- I've always understood the Cobb portrait to be a Horner...

A quick google search produced several mentions of it, here's one:

I have never seen the actual Horner photo used for Johnson's portrait. Does anyone here have a copy? It sold at Christie's years ago. I contacted them to try to get a scan but they sent me to another company that wanted a ton of money just to send me the listing.

These do not list the photographer, but here are some T206 with the photos used to make them:

I've looked for the Horner photo of WaJo for quite some time myself.......

Here is the Horner of Johnson that sold in the 1996 Christie's sale. It sold for $3,450 against a $1,000/$1,500 estimate. I was the frustrated underbidder. It has not changed hands since the sale and currently resides in one of the top collections in the country.

Not that I know of. All I have is the image from the catalog.
