Description

    1913 New York Giants Panoramic Photograph. A twenty-six year old rookie named Jim Thorpe stands just to the left of John McGraw and Christy Mathewson in this magnificent team shot of the National League Champs. Behind them looms the expanse of the Polo Grounds, just two years after a massive fire forced rebuilding. With the market for early baseball photography on a sharp and steady rise, there has never been a better time to invest in a quality piece such as this. All text has been hand applied in white paint, with notables like Rube Marquard, Wilbert Robinson and the cursed Fred Merkle identified for the viewer. A small patch of the photo appears to have become affixed to the glass at left, and the image seems to have been trimmed slightly along the lower border. Other than these factors, the piece displays beautifully with no noteworthy flaws. Photo measures 7.5x26", and has been framed to final dimensions of 11x29".
