The 1914 Boston Braves not only came from out of nowhere to win the World Series, but they changed the way the game was played. No longer was a team reliant on stars and offense, but defense and team chemistry took center stage. The squad has gone down in history as the "Miracle Braves" and their items are highly sought after even 109 years after they captured the World Series. The offered double weight masterpiece of photography is the only team photograph of the squad we have ever offered for sale and is an incredible rarity as the team (despite winning the National League pennant) was thought to have little shot of actually winning the World Series. Stamped on the back by Underwood and Underwood and with a full paper caption as well, the photo presents perfect with note to a few small pinholes from editorial use. One of the most important team photographs we have ever handled and offered here for the first time ever!
