Famous 1911 photograph of the fans lined up at 7am before the start of the World Series in New York at the Polo Grounds. Police monitor the lines and provide security as the fans seem to be buzzing about the fact that their boy Christy Mathewson was on the mound against the Athletics. Vintage posters are all over the place and trash litters the ground (there are probably some t206 cards in those piles). Issued by famous photographer George Grantham Bain and stamped on the back, this is the ONLY original example of this famous photo we have ever seen!
