1908 St. Mary's College in California team photo of twelve players in uniform, but the manager seated at center in street clothes is the star of this image, young Hal Chase of the New York Highlanders. A rare image of one of the most controversial and desirable players of his era, this is a rare image in great shape. It appears to us that the photo dates to perhaps the early 1930's but it has some awesome ink notations on the back from one of the players! Completely off the original glass plate negative and in great shape, this is the only example of this image we have ever handled.
