1903 Chicago Cubs W601 Sporting Life team composite featuring portrait images of sixteen team members, including manager Frank Selee, Frank Chance, Johnny Evers, Joe Tinker, Bobby Lowe, Doc Casey, Johnny Kling, Jimmy Slagle, Davy Jones, and Dick Harley. These team composites, printed on heavy enamel paper and issued by the Sporting Life newspaper, were available to fans either by individual purchase (for ten cents) or as a complete set in a bound volume. The offered piece originates from a bound volume, as indicated by the three prepunched binding holes along the left border. The piece (13 x 14 inches) displays a large tear along the bottom border, moderate creasing, and small pieces of tape on the front, and several small pieces on the reverse. Although the piece is in Poor condition overall, it should be noted that it displays at a much higher level than that suggested by its technically accurate grade. (If matted and framed it would present as Very Good). Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
