Stunning 12" by 56 1/2" panorama of the 1925 World Champion Pittsburgh Pirates. The top 3/4 of the photo shows a magnificent image of the opening game of the 1925 World Series in progress at Forbes Field from the vantage of the upper deck of right-center field. Walter Johnson beat the Pirates in that opening game 4-1 while striking out 10. The exceptionally detailed photo also shows the area behind center field with many buildings, cars and people in a park. The bottom 1/4 of the piece has 30 clear oval portrait photos of 30 players from the 1925 Pittsburgh Pirates, all clearly identified. Included among the group are 5 Hall of Famers: Fred Clarke, Bill McKechnie, Pie Traynor, Ki Ki Cuyler and Max Carey. Photo is copyrighted by "Ralph W. Johnston, 1925 Trinity Court Studio, 313 Sixth Ave., Pittsburgh, PA.". It remains it what appears to be its original frame, and shows not significant condition flaws. A majestic panorama with regard to size, condition and subject. This exact photograph was sold by SCP Auction previously in January, 2006 for $6,670.
