Default Please help with identifying this item





I bought this in early 2018, but was never able to properly identify this item. Would anyone care to help?

Thank you!
Brian

Just trying to help but I do not like the look of the front. Not what I would expect from T1 photo. Jmho the paper seems to have a sheen can you look at photo with a loop and see if you like the looks of it. No dots etc. Edges of subjects ...

Check the date on the coin. It may help determine when the photo was actually produced. I’m thinking pre-1999 but doubt it’s from 1934

Can you tell us what it says below "1934 Champions" or provide a larger scan? There may be some clue as to publisher/printer. Also how thick is the paper--moreso than typical photographs?

The image was produced by Metropolitan Art Studios of Detroit. This is a similar layout to postcard produced of the same time period that is quite rare. I don't have a loup to analyze the ink.

The paper stock is heavier than a typical type 1 photo, but it doesn't “smell" like it's old. You know what I mean?
