Type 1 designation is given to a photo print created within two years of the image being shot. That's really all that makes it a "Type 1."

Default re. photo ID

This is a Conlon of Hack Simmons. The print appeared in the McCabe Conlon book, "Baseball's Golden Age." It is on page 196.

The Spalding/Reach Guide stamp on the reverse of the Conlon photos dates to the mid 1920s.

You're absolutely right, it's Hack Simmons. I had posted earlier this morning that I was convinced the photo wasn't Cobb but I deleted it because I wanted to have more info before sticking that. Now I've got it:

Think the uniform dates to 1908 and later. There's also the famous Conlon photo of Cobb batting with a similar background that dates to 1910.

I have this similar photo of Bush too...

Handwritten ID's on the back of press photos are often incorrect. Even when it comes to big name HOFers. For example, a Paul Thompson photo in our archive of Joe Jackson has him identified as "Bill" Jackson on the reverse. Hmm, that's not right.
