Swing, Bunions!

This wire photo of Milwaukee fan-favorite Heinz Becker, issued between the time he was sold to the Chicago Cubs and his return to Milwaukee the following season:

CHICAGO, Oct. 20 – Here's Heinz Becker, of whom the Chicago Cubs expect great things in the area around first base and home plate. He began his baseball career with Dallas and then went to the Milwaukee Brewers where his hitting attracted more attention. The Cubs got him at the end of this season, to play first base&mdashand to hit, they hope.
Not only an interesting look at the movement of players in 1942, but also a peek into the world of pre-Photoshop photo editing. Only his socks and shoes are spared the combination of airbrush and correction fluid.
