Field Opening Day 1909:
You are looking at a limited edition print of a collage of vintage photos taken on Opening Day at Forbes Field in Pittsburgh on June 30, 1909.
Also included as part of the print is an actual scan of the rarest of the rare…an Opening Day 1909 game ticket from the very first game played at Forbes Field. We have the actual ticket and thought that this would make a great addition to the print. Can’t get much better than that.
The game matched the Pittsburgh Pirates, with Honus Wagner against the Chicago Cubs with the infamous double play combination of Tinker, Evers and Chance all included in the starting line ups listed on the panel. The top panoramic photo is perhaps one of the best shots available of the event. All photos along the bottom include a view of the pre-game traffic next to the ballpark along Bigelow Blvd, a candid shot of fans beyond the left field wall and the main entrance. They are truly special and they make this item one of a kind.
There will be 250 in this limited edition series. It is handsome piece framed that will look great in any office, game room, media room or den. Printed on heavy matte white premium presentation paper...it measures 13 inches by 19 inches. This piece will be a welcome addition to any sports art collection or fan of Forbes Field and Pittsburgh baseball.
