    1906 Chicago White Sox Oversized Photograph by Geo. Lawrence. Consigned by the same source that provided this auction with Lawrence's study of the National League Champion Cubs presented in the adjacent lot, this remarkable team shot of the Chicago White Sox makes history as the finest known photo of the franchise's first World Champs. Certainly produced in this large and expensive format (as was the Cubs example) to mark the special occasion of this all-Chicago World Series, this is one of just a scant few specimens known to survive, and unquestionably the finest. The spectacular contrast, clarity and composition of this work speaks to the tremendous talents of photographer George Lawrence, who would gain national notoriety this year for his images of the devastation wrought by the San Francisco earthquakes. The imperious Charles Comiskey provides the central focal point in his fedora and dark suit, with fellow Hall of Famers Ed Walsh and George Davis sitting crosslegged in the front row. Identical in its 12x16" dimensions to Lawrence's Cubs shot, this photo likewise provides only the slighest, most insignificant faults to diverge from perfection. Elegant modern framing capitalizes on a vintage theme and measures 22x26".
