    1907 W601 Sporting Life Composite Photograph Portfolio with All 16 Teams. NOTE: St. Louis (AL) and Washington were added to the list of included teams.

    John Esch Collection. From 1902 to 1911, the national sports publication Sporting Life issued a series of portfolios that featured team composite photographs of all 16 Major League teams, as well as some minor league teams. The folios measure 13" x 14" and feature paper covers which are bound by string. This lot includes the 1907 edition, which grades to VG condition.
