Original Type I photograph picturing a large contingent of fans exiting the Polo Grounds after a game, circa 1910. A portion of the outfield can be seen in the distance as the fans exit the right-field gate. As one can see here, the crowd had to traverse a long, narrow corridor from the stadium to gain access to both the street and elevated trains. A Brown Brothers credit stamp appears on the reverse. The photo (6.5x5") displays two tiny corner chips along the base and is otherwise in Excellent to Mint condition. Culled from the legendary Brown Brothers Photo Archive. PSA encapsulated as Type I Authentic.
