Attractive Fatima advertising poster measuring approximately 18 1/2" x 12 1/4" featuring Hall of Famers Christy Mathewson, Chief Bender, Rube Marquard, and Eddie Plank, along with Boardwalk Brown, Bryon Houck, Jeff Tesreau and Al Demaree.  The headline reads "Opposing Pitchers in the Coming World's Series Battles."  The reality is that Brown and Houck did not throw a single pitch in the Series, as the Athletics won in five games, and needed only three pitchers to do it.  Chief Bender, Eddie Plank and Bullet Joe Bush pitched all their teams' innings, five consecutive complete games including a ten-inning affair for Eddie Plank in Game 2.  Still, the poster is outstanding, in strong condition with some very minor wrinkles, corner wear, some tiny edge tears and two pieces of clear tape visible on the reverse, none of which takes away from the outstanding presentation.
