That William Paterson is one of the coolest images of Rajah that I've seen. I've been at this a long time and I'm surprised I haven't seen that card before. An image like that usually sticks out in my head. I've owned my fair share of Paterson's, but for some reason, don't recall the Hornsby. Very cool!

Oh, and Chris, I've always loved Hornsby's "Big Head". I think I owned that exact example and got crushed selling via PWCC back in 2014. Ironically, I also owned a PSA 6 and sold it via Goodwin back in 2013 and made a killing. Go figure! Your SGC 20 has very nice borders and presents very nicely for a "Big Head". Great card!

Great cards everyone! I was inspired to look up Hornsby's career. Hard to believe a guy could hit 424 and finish second in the MVP.

Thanks,
My Big Head has done a few travels across our boards. I got it from Glenn(darwinbulldog) back in March 2015.

The MVP award started in 1924. Hornsby won twice, second once, and third once. Prior to 1924, if they had the award, looks like he may have another 2 or 3 MVP's. Wow!

Hornsby is, I continue to believe, a very under-appreciated player, and probably by most objective standards, the greatest right-handed hitter of all time: 3 .400 seasons; two triple crowns; highest lifetime OBP (.433) for a righty; .358 lifetime average (second only to Cobb); and likely would have hit 400+ HR's if his career had not been cut short by injury. One of just seven players in history to create more than 200% of the league average runs created by a player (a Bill James stat I happen to place considerable weight on in evaluating players' offense) over the course of his entire career.
Sorry, no scanner, but he is a favorite of mine, as evidenced by the following cards of him that I have: 1917-20 Felix Mendelsohn; 1928 R315 (yellow stock variation); and 1921 Exhibit.

Best to all,

Larry
