Description1915 Pittsburgh Rebels Federal League Team Panoramic Photograph. Though the team was named for player/manager Rebel Oakes, the moniker was fitting for the Federal League at large, which gave the professional baseball establishment a vigorous shake despite just two years of existence. That brief lifespan has left few artifacts to be enjoyed by the modern collecting community, but this fine panoramic from the collection of catcher Paddy O'Connor should turn some heads. The team stands shoulder to shoulder along the left side of the infield in this 10x20.5" image, marked "Photo by Murphy & Farrar" at lower right. Scattered creases have turned into tears in a few places, but when flattened and framed the image will still present quite nicely. Considering the intense rarity of Federal League panoramic photography, such condition concerns must be forgiven.
The Paddy O'Connor Collection.
This is one of sixteen lots deriving from the personal collection of Paddy O'Connor, a native of County Kerry, Ireland who quickly discovered an aptitude for our National Pastime upon his immigration to the States. O'Connor's baseball career included brief terms in the American, National and Federal Leagues, and most notably membership with the World Championship 1909 Pittsburgh Pirates. The material offered here is consigned directly by the O'Connor family.
