Original glass plate negative of Philadelphia A’s pitcher Chief Bender. The image captures Bender warming up on the sideline prior to a game. Bender’s last name is etched along the side. Bender played with the A’s from 1903 to 1914, but the uniform style shown here, especially the pillbox cap, was used by A’s only between the years 1909 to 1914. Bender won 109 games and three World Championships with the club during that six-year span. He finished his career with 212 wins and a 2.46 lifetime ERA. The negative (7x5”) displays minor flaws along the periphery, as well as a few scratches in the central image. VG. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive.
