This is a vintage / original 1932 print celebrating the 20th anniversary of the 1912 World Series/American League Champions – Boston Red Sox.

Background on the 1912 World Series:

The Boston Red Sox beat the New York Giants in the 1912 World Series, 4 games to 3 (with one tie). This theatrical series featured fantastic pitching from Giant Christy Mathewson and from Boston fireballer Smoky Joe Wood. Wood won two of his three starts and pitched in relief in the final game. In the deciding game, Boston rallied for two runs in the tenth inning thanks to two costly Giants fielding misplays. This was one of only four World Series to go to eight games, and the only best-of-seven Series to do so. While the 1912 Series was extended to eight games due to a tie game being called on account of darkness, the 1903, 1919, and 1921 World Series were all best-of-nine affairs that happened to run eight games. Also, it was at Game 4 of this Series that the World Series drew its 1,000,000th fan.

History and Details of the Panoramic Prints:

1912: Following Boston’s big win, a team panoramic photo was taken at Fenway Park (Inaugural Year of the Park) by the Glines Panoramic Photo Company located at 523 Washington St., Boston, MA. That original 1912 print measured at 25½x9. An illustrated banner reading "1912" and individual portrait photos of manager Jake Stahl, team captain Heinie Wagner, and team president James McAleer appear along the top border. Included among the twenty-six team members pictured were Harry Hooper, Tris Speaker, Joe Wood, Bill Carrigan, Eddie Cicotte, Duffy Lewis, Jake Stahl, Hugh Bedient, Larry Gardner, and Steve Yerkes. Each player was identified in print directly below his respective image.

1962: To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the 1912 Champion Boston Red Sox, This print was re-issued and distributed by the Red Sox at a commemorative event. These particular prints did not show the photographic credits as the original and the names of the players were positioned differently under each player. Most importantly, these prints only measured 10½x4½ - less than half the size of the originals from 1912.

Details of the 1932 Panoramic Print Offered Via This sale:

1932 – The one featured here for sale today: This commemorated the 20th Anniversary of the 1912 Champion Boston Red Sox and was likely the first of the commemorative reissues of this original print. This particular print does not show the photographic credits as the original 1912 and the names of the players are also positioned differently under each player. This print measures 16¼x6½ - larger than the subsequent 1962 version but still smaller than the original from 1912.

This particular piece was placed in a wooden/glass frame measuring 22½x12½. The back of the frame is covered or sealed with newspaper from the period. The framed is nailed and the backing is held with nails as well all from the period. A somewhat primitive process but all original to the piece and has been undisturbed.

With regard to the newspaper backing itself, the person who framed this used the front page of The Progress Index – a Petersburg, Virginia newspaper from Friday, March 4, 1932. The headline reads “Baby’s Nurse Being Grilled In Kidnaping”. In the lower left corner are two other related articles entitled “Suspected Kidnapers’ Auto Is Hunted Here” and “Lindberghs Issue Direct Appeal To baby Kidnapers”. This of course is all in reference to the Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping. Charles Lindbergh flew The Spirit of St. Louis from New York to France in 1927, completing the first solo nonstop transatlantic flight and he became America’s most admired hero. On June, 22 1930, the first of the Lindbergh’s six children, Charles, Jr., was born, dubbed “the Eaglet” by the press. Tragedy struck on the evening of March 1, 1932 when Betty Gow, Charlie's nurse, rubbed medication on the baby's chest to relieve congestion. At about 7:30, Betty and Anne put Charlie Jr. to bed. Betty and the Lindbergh's went on about their separate chores that night. At 10 p.m., Betty Gow made a horrible discovery -- baby Charlie was gone. The child was kidnapped from his second-story bedroom. The kidnapper(s) left a ransom note, the first of many, demanding $50,000. The Lindbergh’s later paid a ransom to the suspected kidnappers using marked bills provided by the FBI. However, this it was all to no avail as the corpse of the child was found on May 12, 1932 just a few miles from the Lindbergh’s Hopewell, New Jersey Home. The Lindbergh’s eventually donated that home to charity and moved away. In 1934 ransom monies starting appearing including a $10 gold certificate used to pay a gas station attendant. That person was Richard Hauptmann. Hauptmann would later stand trial and be convicted for the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh, Jr. On April 3, 1936, Hauptmann was executed in "Old Smokey", the electric chair at the New Jersey State Prison. The crime became known as the crime of the century.

To that end, this old newspaper backing on this frame supports and authenticates the time period of the Boston Red Sox print being from 1932 not to mention offers another bit of historical significance. A truly one of a kind piece.

The print/photo itself is a bit worn but still presents quite nicely considering. The photo is of heavy/thick paper/card stock. It appears this was kept in a place that was rather warm as there is evidence of some surface heat/stress marks/creasing. Corners and edges show some creasing and surface wear and/or damage. Some loose paper on the surface around the edges exists as well. At the 4 corners, pieces of the border are missing. Otherwise, the piece is intact and presents well for its age. The newspaper backing shows wear as well including some tearing around the edges and border. Some of the mounting nails holding the backing in place protrude through the newspaper at the top of the frame. The photo is of heavy/thick paper/card stock.

Multiple photos were taken at several positions in order to show or attempt to show all the aforementioned details and other attributes that this photo has including those which contain surface glares so you can see the surface of the photo that reveals some the heat issues mentioned.

Don’t let this slip away - offers welcomed.
