Coca Cola was starting to become a big time money maker in 1910, but it was still more popular in the South. Here a Coca Cola bottling company in Houston sports quite the lineup on their team by landing all three Bailey brothers on one squad, including young Gene Bailey who would become a major leaguer and a hero in WWI. A fantastic cabinet photograph that is mostly desirable to Coke collectors but throw in a major leaguer and some amazing uniforms and you have something special! Photo portion is essentially perfect with some light wear to the cabinet backing. Almost certainly the only one of these that exists and this is the earliest tie-in to Coca Cola and baseball we have ever handled!
