1914 Vintage photograph of the Philadelphia Athletics, the American League Champions in uniform and posing in front of the brick wall at Shibe Park, where they had been posing since 1910 for their photographs. Included in the photo are Eddie Plank, Chief Bender, Connie Mack, Eddie Collins and Home Run Baker as well as other stars. The condition is perfect and this is from the archives of Underwood and Underwood. While off the original negative, this is likely a c. 1920 re-strike making it barely outside the range of a "vintage 1" and outside the world of sports photography this would still be considered a first generation print.
