PLEASE NOTE THE CORRECTED TITLE TO THIS LISTING

Beautiful 12" x 10" cabinet photo featuring members of the 1908 Boston Doves (who by 1912 became the Boston Braves).  Likely taken during spring training, the players pictured are wearing a number of different uniforms, which clearly date to the 1907 and 1908 Doves.  Incorrectly identified as a 1905 Beaneaters photo in another auction, we did not research this piece for the purposes of writing the auction description until after our auction catalog went to print.

The Doves were managed by Hall of Famer Joe Kelley, who does not appear in this picture.  We believe we can, however, identify Peaches Graham, Dan McGann, Bill Dahlen, Bill Sweeney, Frank Bowerman, Beals Becker, Vive Lindaman, Tom McCarthy, and Al Mattern.

The photo is in outstanding shape, though the mount has absorbed some wear over the years, particularly at the two left corners.  A sticker adorns the reverse, from Murphy and Farrar of Augusta, Georgia, site of the Boston Daves spring training locations between 1908 and 1912.
