Exceptional panoramic team photograph of the 1912 Philadelphia Phillies, a second-division team that nonetheless included several names that are well-known to vintage card collectors, particularly T206.  Professionally matted and framed in a modern frame to a finished size of approximately 33" x 13", the photo pictures the various team members in their team sweaters, "Philadelphia National League Ball Team 1912" Printed at the bottom edge of the photo.  The player names have each been written underneath their likenesses, in what appears to be black fountain pen.  While the matte and frame prevents us from examining the edges and reverse, we can report some prominent tears, including one measuring more than 6" long at the top right edge, and several others radiating from the left and right edges of the photo.  In addition, the bottom-right corner has been torn away.  The photo itself appears as if it had been stored rolled or folded at some point long ago, the resultant wrinkles visible upon close inspection but long since flattened.  Despite all this, an exceptional photo that displays wonderfully.  Players pictured, L-R: Hans Lobert, Jimmy Walsh (though his nickname "Runt" is used), Dode Paskert, Rube Oldham, H. Kutz, illegible, illegible, L. Masters, Ben Hunt, Herman Kurtis, Earl Moore, George Chalmers, Mike Doolin, Grover Alexander (HOF), Ad Brennan, Dale Brinbero, Tom Seaton, Fred Luderus, Curtis Cravath (Gavvy), Red Dooin, Toots Shultz, Bill Wilson, Bill Killefer, Mat Moran, Sherry Magee, Peaches Graham, John Titus, and Otto Knabe.  A fantastic panoramic photo featuring many familiar names from the deadball era.
