Description



Possibly unique, this sweeping maritime scene is the only such one we're aware of, with very few 1914 World Tour ship photos in general being known to exist. White Sox President Comiskey and Giants Manager McGraw are clearly visible in front, while notorious "Eight Men Out" member Buck Weaver sits astride a metal beam waving his cap like a cowboy. Based on the visible details of the background, this ship may well be the German liner SMS Prinz Heinrich en route from Egypt to Italy. Wonderful EX-MT front with heavy reverse mounting wear from vintage album removal. Phenomenal image clarity and contrast.
