Hailing directly from the estate of baseball lifer, Bill Skiff (bottom row, first from the left) this original photograph of the 1921 Kansas City Blues is brimming with future and former major leaguers. Faces immediately recognizable include centerfielder Dode Paskert (top row, first from the left), who played 15 seasons in the major leagues from 1907-1921, and pitcher Red Ames who enjoyed a 17-year major league career from 1903-1919 that included a World Championship with manager John McGraw's 1905 New York Giants.

This 5" x 8.5" photo has been affixed to 8.5" x 11" paper that pictures a scan of the back of the photo. This can be verified by holding the photo up to a light source to see the handwritten notations on verso. Photo displays some wear to the corners and visible creasing that remains largely within the white borders. A fabulous depiction of this obscure American Association club from over a century ago.
