    Description

    1903 World Series Lantern Slide. For the uninitiated, the lantern slide is a long-defunct media similar to photographic slides of today, but larger in dimension (and made from glass, of course) and manufactured to be shown at cinemas. This image finds the Boston Red Sox and Pittsburgh Pirates posing for the camera before the start of a game in the very first World Series. Honus Wagner is instantly recognizable and Cy Young likewise appears. The slide measures approximately 3.25x4", with no condition flaws worthy of mention.
