Lot 2049: 1910 Boston Red Sox Panoramic Photograph (16x32" framed)
You have to come into our offices and see this photograph for yourself. Trust us on this--our image in the catalog will not do it justice. It's rare to see a modern photograph with this combination of size and clarity. But one that's ninety-two years old?! You can make out individual hairs, button holes on the men's jackets, blades of grass. Razor-sharp isn't strong enough. And as far as condition, let's just say that the part of the photograph that actually encompasses the men pictured is NRMT. It is only to the upper right area, away from the subjects, that a bit of scuffing is noticeable upon close inspection. The men certainly need no introduction. Lewis, Hooper, Speaker, Wood, even future Black Sock Eddie Cicotte. Matte and frame are not original (though very nice!), but photograph is one of the very best you will see from this era, guaranteed.
