Mike Abt Press Photo. Chicago: Central Press Association, 8 Jan., 1948, photo taken by T. Kaitila. Press photo, 20.7cm by 25.4cm. Very good with light creases and corner bumping. One of the agency stamps on verso can be faintly seen on the front side. No caption, simply reads “Mike Abt / Chicago” on verso with a couple of stamps. A stunning cropped image of Abt, a champion six-day racer from Chicago. Throughout his career, Abt had teamed with Jules Audy, Bill Jacoby, and Gustav Kilian, among others, with mixed results. While still staged in Europe, Six-Days, a form of six day/twenty-four hour team track races, were popular in the United States from the 1890s till World War II. $50.00
