Absolutely incredible 1908 sweeping look at the interior of Hilltop Park the home of the New York Highlanders. Photo shows an overflow crowd, jammed in directly behind home plate and with a game in progress. It looks like a Highlanders player has just hit a pop-up judging by the body language of the fielders and the fact the runner is heading to first. The detail is incredible and it looks like the game was against the Philadelphia Athletics based on the scoreboard. Images of Hilltop Park are rare and desirable with this being the finest example of a game in progress we have ever handled. An exciting new discovery that remains in pretty nice shape with a small crease on the upper right corner.
