1903 supplement to the Pittsburgh Sunday Press featuring a handsome photo of that season's Pittsburgh Pirates.  Attractive photo is matted and framed to a finished size of approximately 18 1/4" x 14", with some wear evident to the wood frame, giving it a "distressed" appearance that may not be intentional.  The image pictures the team in a variety of team-issued attire; some wear their team sweaters, others full coats, some in uniform, and team president Barney Dreyfus in street clothes.  The supplement itself does exhibit a few small spots that appear to be water staining; the majority of these appear in the bottom border though there is one pronounced stain above the head of Fred Clarke.  Some wrinkling can be seen upon close observation, particularly at the edges.  Of course Honus Wagner appears in the back row, second from right.
