1924 Pottsville Maroons vs. Atlantic City Roses Original Panoramic Photograph

1924 Pottsville Maroons vs. Atlantic City Roses Original Panoramic Photograph

The independent football team from Pottsville, Pennsylvania, the Pottsville Eleven originally played in the eastern Pennsylvania circuit against other independent and local teams.  With their success and ever-growing fanbase, they joined the Anthracite League in 1924, changed their name to the "Maroons" and even won the league title.

With their eyes on bigger and better things, the Maroons desperately wanted to make an impression on the NFL and its president Joe Carr.  On a trip to play the Atlantic City Roses the Maroons' fans followed along, attended the game and sent a loud message to the NFL.  This beautiful panoramic photograph was taken during the trip and shows the team with all of their loyal fans.  All the hard work finally paid off and the Maroons became an official NFL team in 1925.  

The oversized panoramic photograph is very focused, crisp and has tremendous eye appeal.  9x42" piece is framed and matted at 22x54".
