    1924 Pottsville Maroons vs. Atlantic City Roses Original Panoramic Photograph. Originally referred to as the "Pottsville Eleven", the Pottsville Maroons adopted their new nickname in 1924, the same season the team went 12-1-1 and claimed the Anthracite League title. Presented here is a truly historic oversized panoramic photograph featuring the Pottsville players and their fans, which represents a trip to play the Atlantic City Roses. A significant game in team history, the Maroons and their fans filled buses to make a statement to NFL president Joe Carr in order to make a statement that the sleepy coal-mining town had a fan base worthy of NFL membership. Please note: since there is no photographer's name in white noted on the right hand side which is common to the other copies which we have seen sold at auction, so it has been established that this is indeed an original photograph and very significant. Exhibiting terrific eye appeal, with very few visible flaws, the 9x42" piece is framed and matted at 22x54". Third-party shipping required.
