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 a brown paper backing and remains in excellent condition throughout, save for a small area of damage to the upper-left corner and a small tear just below along the left edge. A credit attributing the image to Philadelphia-based photographer William Nicholson Jennings appears in the lower-right corner, while a "1910 B.B.C of Phila." copyright appears to the lower-left.
