Three Early Stadium Photos (Shibe Park and Baker Bowl)

Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $420

Collection of three exceptional original photos capturing Baker Bowl and Shibe Park. 1-2) Two photos of Shibe Park, which was home to the Philadelphia Athletics from 1909 to 1954 and to the Philadelphia Phillies from 1938 to 1970. The first photo (10 x 8 inches, affixed to a vintage cardboard mount measuring 14 x 10 inches), which is undated, pictures the field from the vantage point of the grandstand, directly behind home plate. This is an early view of the stadium, as the left field upper deck section (seen in the other photo) had not yet even been built. Photo: Vg. Mount: Gd. The second photo (9.5 x 8.5 inches; linen backed), which identifies the stadium in white lettering on the front, pictures the field from the vantage point of the grandstand, just to the right of home plate. The left field, center field, and right field dimensions are printed in white on the photo. The photographer's credit "Allan Cleaves Dodge - Philadelphia" and the year, "1938," appear in the lower right corner. Ex. 3) Photo (9.5 x 8.25 inches; linen backed) of Baker Bowl, which was home to the Philadelphia Phillies from 1904 to 1938. The photo, which identifies the stadium in white lettering on the front, pictures the field from the vantage point of the grandstand, just to the right of home plate. The left field, center field, and right field dimensions are printed in white on the photo. The photographer's credit, "Allan Cleaves Dodge - Philadelphia," appears in the lower right corner. Although undated, this photo is similar to Cleaves' photo of Shibe Park and most likely dates from approximately the same time period. Ex. Total: 3 photos (two picturing Shibe Park and one picturing Baker Bowl). Reserve $100. Estimate $300+. SOLD FOR $420
