Description

There are few true shrines left in baseball, Yankee Stadium will come down in a few years and that leaves the fans with just two, Boston’s Fenway Park and Chicago’s Wrigley Field. Offered is a striking panoramic view from the right field seats of the friendly confines of Wrigley Field in 1939. At the base of this professionally matted and framed photo is a parade of (25) posed Cubbies photos. Note the early years of the outfield wall ivy and the clearer view of Wrigley from across the street beyond the left field seats. The picture includes three Hall of Famers: Dizzy Dean, “Gabby” Hartnett and Bill Herman, as well as All-Star Stan Hack and fan favorite, Charlie Root. The approximate dimensions: the photo 7-3/8” x 27-1/8” with overall dimensions being 13-3/4” x 33-1/2”. Although there is some discoloration (about 1 to 1-1/2” wide) and moderate creasing on the photo from top to bottom about eight inches in from the left edge, the excellent framing job and overall eye-appeal of this panoramic piece win out. For the complete list of Cubs in this image, please visit our website.

Here are the other of the (25) Cubs players with individual pictures at the base of this interesting panoramic photo of Wrigley Field from 1939: Roy Johnson, the first player pictured on the left, ended his career in 1938 and never played for the Cubs, Gus Mancuso (in his one year with the Cubs), Gene Lillard, Augie Galan, Bobby Mattick, Vance Page, Bill Lee, Jim Gleeson, Clay Bryant, Bob Garbark, Claude Passeau, Hank Leiber, Carl Reynolds, Glen Russell, Phil Cavarretta, Earl Whitehill, Larry French, Jack Russell, Dick Bartell and John Corriden. Come on, Cubs fans—give this photo a try.
