Description

    1913 Philadelphia Athletics World Championship Celebratory Dinner Imperial Cabinet Photograph from the Frank "Home Run" Baker Collection. Less than three weeks after slaying Matty and McGraw's New York Giants, the White Elephants were feted by the Philadelphia glitterati in an elegant banquet at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel. Seated in the distance beyond a sea of tuxedoed gentlemen eating oysters on the half shell can be spotted Mack, Baker and the gang. A massive thirty-foot high banner in the background, recycled from two seasons earlier, reads "Philadelphia Americans, 1911, Champions of the World." The image, measuring 10.5x18.5", shows only very mild surface rubbing and merits a very conservative EX-MT rating. The cardboard mount, which brings the final dimensions to 14x22", shows considerably more wear, with mottled toning, edge wear, and a chipped lower left corner. A proper framing job, however, will turn this piece into a real beauty. Clearly only produced to be issued to players and V.I.P.'s, this photo is the first of its kind that we have encountered.
