Everything there is to know about the Landis legacy is encapsulated in this 7x9 photo—the intensity, the sternness,, the single-minded focus, the trademark scowl. Indeed, Wide World's 10/4/33 caption reads, "THE SAME JUDGE LANDIS...'High Priest' of organized baseball in the same pose he has been seen in fore years." The date corresponds with Game 2—the Giants' second straight win at home, though Goose Goslin did hit a solo HR in the losing effort. Heavy newsroom wear in the form of a vertical crease, multiple pinholes, an edge tear and an ink smudge that manages to avoid the Commissioner's face.
