Hailing from the American Association, the 1925 Milwaukee Brewers were absolutely stacked with future and former major league talent. In-fact virtually the entire roster of the 1925 Brewers enjoyed at minimum a cup of coffee in the big show. A total of nine Brewers and their team president are pictured in the presented mounted photograph, seven of which saw major league service. They include: Herman Bell, Bunny Brief, Dinty Gearin, Ivy Griffin, Frank Luce, Alex McCarthy, and Bill Skiff. Each player's name has been applied over their likeness using what appears to be felt tip pen. "Sanford Fla. 3/20/25" appears written in the lower-right corner, suggesting the image was shot during a spring training excursion for the team. Verso remains blank aside from clear tape at center and areas where similar tape was once removed. Overall dimensions of approx. 8" x 10" with matting over the central image that measures approx. 4.5" x 6.5". A fresh-to-the-hobby example directly from the estate of former major league catcher, minor league manager, and scout, Mr. Bill Skiff.
