Huge 1911 composite photograph of the four pitchers that led the New York Giants into the World Series against the Athletics, highlighted by Hall of Famer Christy Mathewson. Almost like a poster, this was issued by Underwood and Underwood and has their credit on the corner. Per our rules, if a composite photograph was issued by the original photographer, it then becomes it's own work of art and is considered a "vintage 1" example and this one is a perfect example of this. Each player has been die cut from an individual Underwood photo and then artfully arranged by the photo service to create this masterpiece of photography. Measuring a whopping fourteen inches wide, the photo presents well with the pinholes at the corners almost seeming appropriate for such a large poster-like work of photography. This is the only example of this photograph we have ever seen and it presents beautifully, offered here for the first time ever!
