Crystal-clear capturing the 1911 Washington Senators posing in front of the grandstand during spring training. Certified as an original Type 1 photograph by PSA/DNA. Thirty-two team members are pictured here, including Hall of Fame pitcher Walter Johnson (seated, front row, second from the right). Washington trained in Atlanta, Georgia, prior to the start of the 1911 season and the credit stamp of an Atlanta photographer, "Mathewson" appears twice on the reverse. Also featured on the reverse are a number of vintage editorial instructions and an ink notation that reads "1911-Training camp at Atlanta, Ga." While we have no reason to doubt the year listed on the reverse, it should be noted that the uniform style shown here was used by Washington only for the 1910 and 1911 seasons. The photo (9.5 x 7.5 inches) displays a number of light-moderate creases (most are only visible when viewed at certain angles) and minor corner wear. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
