    Circa 1905 Roger Bresnahan Imperial Cabinet Photographs Lot of 3. We've been fortunate to have sold an array of memorabilia from the estate of Roger Bresnahan, consigned by his descendants, including the last out ball of the 1905 World Series, game used gear and trophies. This is the absolute last of it, according to the Bresnahan family, a trio of truly massive (for their time) imperial cabinet photos picturing the Hall of Fame catcher in action. At 11x14" each (not inclusive of the mounts, which extend the dimensions to 14x17"), these are among the largest non-panoramic Dead Ball Era images we've encountered. We'd love to know the reason for their creation, but that is lost beneath the sands of time.

    Only one of the three exhibits damage of significance--the loss of the lower right corner, but all three show warping suggestive of dampness, and general handling and storage wear. But the trio would make for a truly impressive display when framed and hung. We've never seen anything quite like it. Letter of provenance from Bresnahan family.
