Intriguing original photo capturing three of the most important figures of the Philadelphia Athletics dynasty.  Hall of Famers Connie Mack, Eddie Collins and Jimmie Foxx are pictured, seated in the A's dugout.  The photo is dated 7-9-29 on the reverse, placing it within one of the best-ever seasons for the legendary Athletics.  The 1929 A's had an incredible 104-46 regular season record, and beat the Cubs 4 games to 1 in the World Series.  A unique image, VG condition due to an upper-left corner crease, measuring approximately 5 1/4" x 9 1/2", likely trimmed from a larger photo, with paper remnants and newspaper caption affixed to the reverse.  Guaranteed Type 1.
