1904 Chief Bender

1904 Chief Bender "Native American" Cabinet Photograph

Dated June 2, 1904, this photograph was taken early in Benders career while with the Philadelphia A's. Bender is handsomely dressed and appears to look more like a fashion model than the world famous pitcher he was to become. This is a very interesting crossover piece combining Native American history, Early Baseball and Victorian photography. Believed to be hand written on the back is "Char A Bender", "Chippewa Tribe", "6/2/04" and "6-2-1904". 8.75" x 5". Some corner wear.
