The caption on the back reads: A little the-hand-is-quicker-than-the-eye stuff at the 1923 training camp. Left to right: Del Howard, Al Erle, Otto Egenberger, Joe Devine, and Al Cristofani. In addition to the caption: This is a photo of five players all focused on the ball that Al Erle is holding. The players are all hunched over and smiling as they play the game of trickery. The three players in the middle are wearing baseball caps and the player to the right is wearing a street cap. Only the players in the middle are wearing gloves as the person on the outside on the right and the left are in street clothes.They are standing on grass and behind them is a fence and behind that is a house.
