Description

    1914 Philadelphia Athletics Panoramic Photograph. Simply extraordinary silver gelatin panoramic photograph finds the American League Champions, including Connie Mack's fabled "$100,000 Infield," standing shoulder to shoulder at Shibe Park prior to their home opener, as a scripted notation at lower right attests. Though the Tall Tactician is not present in the image, the shot suffers no shortage of legends, with Frank "Home Run" Baker, Chief Bender and Eddie Plank among those pictured. Twenty-one players, each wearing the glorious mascot elephant-adorned sweaters against the early April cold, stand shoulder to shoulder with the stadium band, a packed grandstand of spectators behind them. The photo measures 27.5x7.5" in size, and is simply matted and framed to final dimensions of 14x34". We have not examined the piece outside of the frame, but the visible portion exhibits no flaws worthy of note. Unquestionably the best photographic documentation we've ever encountered of the first great Philadelphia Athletics dynasty.
