Original panoramic photograph capturing twenty-eight members of the 1929 World Champion Philadelphia Athletics posing together on the field at Shibe Park. Each player is identified in print directly below his respective image, including manager Connie Mack, Eddie Collins, Mickey Cochrane, Jimmie Foxx, Al Simmons, Lefty Grove, George Earnshaw, and Eddie Rommel. The white-lettered caption in the upper right corner reads "Philadelphia 'Athletics'/American League Pennant Winners - 1929." The fact that the photo refers to the club as the American League pennant winners, and not World's Champions, indicates that it was produced shortly before the start of the 1929 World Series. 1929 marked the start of Connie Mack's last baseball dynasty, which saw the A's win three consecutive pennants and two consecutive World Championships between the years 1929 and 1931. The crystal-clear photo (29.5x6.75") is in apparent Excellent to Mint condition and has been matted and framed to total dimensions of 38.5x15.5". Please Note: The size and/or weight of this lot will necessitate an increased shipping charge.
