Description

    1915 Pittsburgh Rebels Federal League Panoramic Supplement. The two-season shelf life of the Federal League and the near century since its dissolution have had the expected effect upon available supply of related artifacts, and here we find one of the rare survivors. And what a survivor it is! This visually arresting panoramic paper supplement promotes one of the final games in League history, a September 25, 1915 meeting between the Pittsburgh Rebels and the Newark Pepper. The display provides a mesmerizing spectator's eye view of the Pittsburgh ballpark up top and individual photographic vignettes of the team members below. Separation at the folds accounts for the bulk of condition issues, but when laid flat (and, ideally, linen mounted) the worst of the faults would be eliminated. This is the first example we've encountered of this piece, and we wouldn't be surprised if it's the last as well. Size is 17x42".

    The Paddy O'Connor Collection.

    This is one of sixteen lots deriving from the personal collection of Paddy O'Connor, a native of County Kerry, Ireland who quickly discovered an aptitude for our National Pastime upon his immigration to the States. O'Connor's baseball career included brief terms in the American, National and Federal Leagues, and most notably membership with the World Championship 1909 Pittsburgh Pirates. The material offered here is consigned directly by the O'Connor family.
