    Description

    1926 Eastern Colored League Champion Bacharach Giants Original Team Photograph. Founded and named after Atlantic City politician Harry Bacharach in 1916, the Atlantic City Bacharach Giants became charter members of the Eastern Colored League in 1923. In 1926, led by shortstop player/manager Dick Lundy, the Bacharach Giants won the Eastern Colored League title, finishing with a 56-35 record and the right to play the Chicago American Giants, champions of the Negro National League, in the Negro League World Series. For the season, Lundy hit .320, outfielder Red Farrell hit .348, and pitcher Red Grier went 25-12.

    Shot on field, this sepia image depicts sixteen members of that championship Bacharach team, fourteen of which are wearing three different styles of uniforms, namely "Bacharach Giants", "Bacharach", and "B" fronts. Script inscription at top in black fountain pen reads "Bacharach Giants Champions - Colored Eastern League 1926." 9x7" with uneven borders, several holes from ring binders, some surface damage, and discoloration. However, all the players are clearly visible.
