Pair of exceptional Philadelphia Athletics team photos, culled from The Chicago Sun Times archives, dating, respectively, from the club's 1911 and 1913 World Championship seasons. Both photos picture the respective club posing together in a traditional team pose at Shibe Park, with each featuring exceptional crystal-clear clarity and contrast. These are extraordinary team images. Reverse markings on the 1911 photo (7 x 5 inches) include an "Oct 19 1911" date stamp and a "N. Y. Herald Syndicate" credit stamp, while those on the 1913 photo (7.5 x 4.75 inches) feature an "Oct 2-1913" date stamp and a New York Herald credit stamp ("N. Y. H. Service"). Each of the photos has a few very minor flaws common to nearly all working press photos. The 1911 photo is in Excellent condition, while the 1913 photo has a small edge tear and is in Very Good condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
