Unique 1914 photograph of a member of the baseball world tour in Bakersfield, California posing next to a huge advertising for the tour itself, glued to a post downtown on the day of the game. The top of the poster mentions Bakersfield and has the complete lineup of both teams. Easily measuring six feet tall, this is the only image of one of these posters we have ever seen and it is a rare piece of California baseball history. Recently found in the estate of one of the players on the tour.
