Lot 312: Willie Hoppe Photos (2)
See what kind of grip Willie Hoppe and Jake Schaefer had on the world of billiards in the 1920s. Unusual pair of photos features them lining up shots in a championship -- the legendary Hoppe in the light suit on the left and the upstart Schaefer on the right. Crop marks are drawn on both 6x8"images with verso Fotograms stamp. Straight-shot photo has detailed typewritten captions attached. Pool aficionados should not get left behind the eight ball on this one. Each photo has a small tear, otherwise VG.
