Description

The 1905 American League Champion Philadelphia Athletics are featured on this fragile team photograph on cloth. This framed and matted antiquity has the approximate dimensions of 15-1/2 x 12-1/2 and was sponsored by Wanamaker Sporting Goods of Philadelphia. Although this fabric reveals numerous holes and moderate soiling throughout, the star-studded cast still displays extremely well. More prominent players featured are Bender, manager Mack, Plank and Waddell. Both the obverse and reverse feature the same image making this relic most likely a small team flag or a Wanamaker window display.
