One of the least known yet groundbreaking events in baseball history happened in 1914 when a team of Asian ballplayers dubbed the "All Chinese" toured and played games against mostly teams from Hawaii. Shown here with a few members of the Philadelphia Athletics who were also touring the island of Hawaii as part of the "All Americans" this is from the scrapbook of one of the players. This is the ONLY known original team photograph from the 1914 All Chinese Tour we have ever seen or heard of and as such it is a significant find in the hobby! Silver gelatin photograph is in great shape and with tremendous clarity, this is a unique new discovery that is being offered here for the first time ever!
