1909 Panoramic photograph of the entrance to Forbes Field just before the start of the first game of the World Series. Fans are swarming and there is a buzz in the air surrounding the new ballpark, just a few months old, and the chances for the Pirates to take the series. An incredible new discovery from the Central Press and stamped on the back from 1912 when they started date stamping all their items, this is a completely vintage 1909 image (actually two images spliced together by a skilled photographer to make this image) that is being offered here for the first time ever! Photo has a small rip on the upper right corner with a crease that has been repaired as well, the photo looks nicer than the technical grade.
