A strong case can be made that this was the best Red Sox team in history—and it just so happened to be the inaugural season of Fenway Park. Roaming in the shadow of the Green Monster was Boston's "Golden Outfield" of Duffy Lewis, Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper. While on the mound, Smoky Joe Wood racked up an incredible 34-5 record with 10 shutouts. The BoSox ran away with the AL pennant (a full 14 games ahead of the second-place Senators) and won a thrilling 8-game World Series over the Giants, thanks in part to outfielder Fred Snodgrass's infamous muffed fly.


Before all that, Jake Stahl's club trained in the resort town of Hot Springs, Arkansas, where they gathered outside Buckstaff Bath House for this mesmerizing team photo. Only once prior has this exact 12x10 cabinet, or one just like it, ever surfaced at auction—and we can safely say that it's the next best thing to Carl Horner's 1912 Red Sox panorama ($5,000+). EX photo on a handsomely embossed VG mount. Superb image contrast and clarity.
