Description1903 Philadelphia Phillies Photographic Composite Display by Carl Horner. Consigned to this Signature auction by the same source that provides us with the Athletics composite of the same vintage, this glorious Dead Ball Era rarity showcases the photographic skills of Carl Horner, the sports preeminent lensman of the day whose imagery populates many contemporary trading card issues. Certainly the seventeen photos here will be familiar to many in our card collecting clientele.
The man at center of the display, Charles "Chief" Zimmer, is unquestionably the most significant baseball figure present, a star catcher for nineteen seasons widely considered the finest defensive backstop of his time. He operated as a forty-two year old player/manager for the 1903 Phillies, his last season of service to the Majors.
All photos are affixed to a large cardboard mount measuring approximately 24x23". Viewers will note that the edges exhibit chipping, though only one photo, that of outfielder Shad Barry, infringes upon the subject himself. Pitcher Fred Burchell at lower right corner is affected by water damage. The extraordinary rarity and desirability easily overrides these condition concerns however.
