This photograph was taken in 1911 the year that the Giants won their first of three consecutive National League pennants. Led by manager John McGraw "Little Napoleon" or "Mugsy", who was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937. Sadly they lost in the World Series to a stronger Philadelphia Athletics team that year.
The San Francisco Giants of MLB were originally known as the New York Gothams. They changed their name to the New York Giants in 1885 and then relocated to San Francisco in 1957. The majority of their New York games were played home games at the Polo Grounds in Upper Manhattan.
The Show, Hardball, the National Pastime. The smell of peanuts and crackerjacks floats in the air alongside the crack of a ball hitting a bat and soaring into center field. Baseball is a tradition that has stirred the imaginations of Americans for as long as memory serves. Time moves at a different pace inside of the local park, and what feels like mere minutes turns into an evening well spent.

Indulge your addiction to the greatest game on earth with this classic vintage style print of one of baseball's most iconic teams.
