Appealing cabinet photograph featuring several members of the 1907 St. Louis Browns and their associates. This group appears to have been caught in, or staged to represent, a candid moment while the men are wearing their finest street clothes. Photo includes handwritten notations at the very bottom identifying all individuals. Upon cursory inspection those names include but are not limited to:

Front row (L to R): Joe Yeager, Barney Pelty, Jack Powell, manager Jimmy McAleer

Back row (L to R): Kid Butler, Beany Jacobson

While extreme corners of the mount have chipped away, the entirety of the piece remains in fantastic overall condition. Minor smudging is present on verso and a credit stamp from photographer George S. Pietzcker has been applied at the very center.  Mount size measures approx. 10" x 12" with a photo size of 6" x 8.25". One of several pieces in our 10th Anniversary Auction emanating directly from the estate of former Browns pitcher, Barney Pelty where they have remained until the time of this sale.
