    1907 Philadelphia Athletics Team Original Photograph, PSA/DNA Type 1. Illustrative of the classic photography and aesthetic beauty of early twentieth century baseball images, this 9.5x5" sepia image depicts the well-tailored Connie Mack flanked and backed by eighteen members of his 1907 Philadelphia Athletics squad, including Hall of Famers Rube Waddell, Eddie Plank, and Chief Bender. With the grandstand of Columbia Park visible in the background, the players pose with arms folded in their home whites, replete with fancy "A" over the heart. Just three seasons later, Mack's A's would begin their first dynasty era which would last from 1910-14. Both Plank and Bender would play starring roles for that dynasty making this image an early snapshot of the origins of that era.

    The image, which has been backed by cardboard, exhibits some staining, a pinhole, chipping, and border wear, but is still a highly attractive and extraordinary display piece from an early Mack team which are scarce and desirable. Full LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
