Vintage Photo of the Day: Card Playing Giant Hall of Famers

Do baseball players play cards anymore?  Years ago they did—a lot.  Our Vintage Photo of the Day from RMY Auctions is this wire service photo from 1934 showing several members of the New York Giants in the middle of a game of poker.

Carl Hubbell and Mel Ott, two Hall of Famers, are pictured along with others whose names are scripted in pencil on the back.  The photo appears to have been taken at a hotel, and shows the players dressed in uniform.
