    Description

    1914 Boston Red Sox Panoramic Photograph from the Frank "Home Run" Baker Collection. One need only look at the staff that comprised the 1914 BoSox to gain a clear indication of just how powerful were Baker's Philadelphia Athletics of that season, which finished the season eight and a half games ahead of Speaker, Hooper and Smokey Joe Wood. The team that welcomed Babe Ruth to the Majors appears on this fantastic 8x35" image culled from the personal collection of Home Run Baker, each player identified by surname below his image, with a caption reading, "Boston 'Red Sox' American League at Fenway Park, Aug. 19, 1914." The image is as razor-sharp as it is charming, complete with a bulldog mascot and gawking fans in the brand new ballpark's stands in the background. Only at the outermost edges are there any signs of wear, a couple short vertical creases on either side and a .75" tear at the left end. The vast bulk of the photo presents as NRMT, making this certainly the finest example of the two or three such examples that could possibly still exist.
