Gorgeous team photo of the World Champion 1910 Philadelphia Athletics posed outside their home stadium, Shibe Park. Each of Connie Mack's men is dressed in business attire; a perfect echo of their manager and his no-nonsense approach to the game. Features several youthful all-time great Hall of Famers including: Eddie Collins (third from left, top row), Eddie Plank (second from left, middle row), Home Run Baker (second from right, middle row), Chief Bender (fourth from right, middle row), and Connie Mack himself seated at center of the bottom row. 8" x 10" photo has been mounted to heavy board which has begun to separate along the right edge and corner below. An obvious crease runs from the left border of photo down to Jack Lapp's right elbow and some smudging is apparent throughout. Additional creasing of the mount appears on verso that does not impact photo while clear tape reinforces the separating areas. A W.N. Jennings credit stamp has been applied at center of verso with Jennings also credited in the lower-right corner of the image itself.
