Carl Horner was THE premier photographer of the early 20th century. The images used from his photography sessions were produced as photographic cabinets, but later became the basis for many baseball cards - including the noteworthy sets of T206, T204, M116, and E107. For example, the image of Red Ames was used for his likeness on both the Fan Craze and M116 Sporting Life issues. Similarly, the portrait of Dan McGann was used for Fan Craze, his T206 card, and his W600 cabinet. Vastly popular and highly collectible, each of these crisp photographic images remains securely affixed to their original Carl Horner studio cabinet mounts.

Included in this lot are Horner studio cabinets of four (4) New York Giants players - namely Sam Mertes (SGC 10), Red Ames (SGC 10), Dan McGann portrait (SGC 10), and Dan McGann batting. Each of these cabinets represents a graded "1 of 1." The full body image of Dan McGann was formerly encapsulated in an SGC 50/4 holder. Originally, SGC did not distinguish between the two poses when grading Dan McGann's images, and thus the population of two represents both of these cabinets. Of interest to note is that a hint of the mirror image of a standing image of McGann is reflected on the back of his cabinet - likely as a wet sheet transfer.
