High-Quality 1913 Pittsburgh Pirates Panoramic Supplement from “The Index.”

Lot 7. High-Quality 1913 Pittsburgh Pirates Panoramic Supplement from “The Index.” Measuring approximately 13.75” x 31.75”, this photographic supplement features 27 members of Pittsburgh’s 1913 team, including manager-outfielder Fred Clarke, Honus Wagner, Max Carey, future pro football HoFer Jim Conzelman and Babe Adams. Actually, Wagner was absent when photographer from the R. W. Johnston Studios took the picture. His photo was added, and he wears a 1912 road uniform. The other players are wearing their 1913 home uniforms. These Pirates put together a winning season but trailed New York and two other teams at season’s end. Wagner had his 15th straight, and final, season of batting .300 or higher. Infielder Jim Viox had an excellent season at the plate, Max Carey led the N.L. in stolen bases and runs, and Babe Adams won 21 games with a 2.15 ERA. Appearing in only nine games, compared with 100 in 1912, Clarke essentially became a full-time manager. It’s not likely that a finer copy of this supplement exists; we certainly have not seen it. Framed to 14.25” x 32.25”, this copy has six vertical folds, apparently as issued, or at least mailed. It is free of stains, creases and other characteristics that detract from its magnificence. A few tiny edge creases and one corner crease do not. “The Index” was a supplement to a short-lived Pittsburgh publication titled “The Illustrated Weekly.” Winning Bid $646.
