Description

    1909 Detroit Tigers Panoramic Team Photograph. After back-to-back Fall Classic losses to the dominant Chicago Cubs (who would then enter the longest Championship drought in the history of American professional sports), the Tigers would alternate victories with the National League Champion Pittsburgh Pirates in 1909, the last time that Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner would share a stage until Cooperstown 1939. But the Bucs sent the Tigers to Davey Jones Locker in the deciding Game Seven, drowning the felines in a lopsided eight-to-nothing result. It would be Cobb's last taste of October baseball.

    But the greatest figure of the Dead Ball Era looks ready to conquer the world in this spectacular panorama celebrating the three-peating American League Champs, standing second from left in a line of early stars also including "Wahoo Sam" Crawford, George Moriarty and Hughie "Ee-Yah" Jennings.

    The viewable area of the photo measures 7.5x27" in size, and appears to have been laid down to a cardboard backing (though we have not examined it outside of the frame). Several creases weave paths through the image, but remain mostly clear of the central focus. We advise bidders to carefully view our large online images for the best assessment of condition. Framed dimensions are a shade larger than 10x30".
