1903 W601 New York Giants Sporting Life team composite featuring portrait images of sixteen team members, including manager John McGraw (pictured in the center), Christy Mathewson, "Iron Man" Joe McGinnity, Roger Bresnahan, and "Dummy" Taylor. These Sporting Life team composites (13 x 14 inches), printed on heavy enamel paper and issued by the Sporting Life newspaper, were available to fans either by individual purchase (for ten cents) or as a complete set in a bound volume. The offered example was originally obtained by the latter method, as there three binding holes along the left border. The piece displays a number of small edge tears, light border stains, and a tear through one of the binding holes. While technically in Good condition, the central image area is free of any significant defects and the composite would present as Ex-Mt when properly matted and framed. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
