Original Type I photograph capturing Giants manager John McGraw, Highlanders player/manager Hal Chase, and Hall of Fame umpires Bill Klem and Thomas Connolly as they discuss the ground rules prior to a game at the Polo Grounds, circa 1910. Two Brown Brothers credit stamps appear on the reverse, along with the handwritten names (in pencil) of the four individuals pictured. Chase was player/manager of the Highlanders in 1910 and 1911. Because the Giants and Highlanders never met in the World Series, this is obviously a preseason or postseason exhibition game between the two city rivals. Chase, who ended his career with the Giants, was considered one of the finest fielding first baseman of his era, but his reputation for “throwing” games ultimately led to his being forced out of the Majors following the 1919 season. The photo measures 7x5” and displays a few tiny surface wrinkles in the lower left corner. EX-MT. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive. PSA encapsulated as Type I Authentic.
