1921 Extremely rare photograph of Tony Brottem in uniform with the Pittsburgh Pirates and working out at Forbes Field before a game. He was only a part-time player at his best and in three years he played a total of 62 games in the big leagues, only 30 with the Pirates. This is one of the only images of Brottem that exists and this is the only example of him we have ever seen in 20+ years!
