    Great photo with some awesome detail. Looks to be the early 1920s.
    Put it in the books.

    • It's a colorized version of a Bain photo from the 1914 World Series. Pretty awesome.

      • The picture seems to have disappeared since yesterday. But it was very nicely done! Realistic-looking.

          Good info, thanks. Indeed, I now notice the date in the upper left.

          I still see it. But since there was some difficulty when it was first posted, it's not surprising that some are having difficult experiences with it.

          So I'll post it again.

          • Quite the thing! It looks like someone went back to the 1914 World Series in a time machine, and took a modern digital camera along.

              Right? That's pretty much what I thought. Really good resolution, and nearly perfect colorization.
              Put it in the books.

                • I follow him on Twitter but I didn't know he was on Facebook. Since I'm more active on Facebook, I'm now following him there as well.

                  • How about any interior color pictures when the seats were green and the fences were ad free? Before the A's left. I always thought she looked a little classier back then.

                    • How about the famous picture of Tony Taylor standing in Connie Mack Stadium (after the fire) when the whole field was overgrown with weeds?

                      • That 1914 picture may be the best 100+ year old photo of any kind that I have ever seen. Put that baby on a large TV monitor and turn out all the lights until it is pitch black dark in your room. It is incredibly real feeling, almost as real as virtual reality. That was a World Series the Athletics didn't enjoy.
