Baker Phila. Amer. (Color portrait of Frank Baker (John Franklin Baker) framed by two baseball bats. An elephant is in the top left corner. 'Athletics' is in the top right corner. Baker earned the nickname Home Run Baker in the 1911 World Series with the Philadelphia Athletics. Verso: Frank Baker. Frank Baker, the tall and hard-hitting third baseman of the champion Athletics, is a native of Maryland. After playing with semi-professional teams he had a short trial with the Baltimores, and in 1907 and in 1908 covered third for the Reading Club of the Tri-state League. His work with the latter was so brilliant that Connie Mack got his services. With the Athletics he has not fallen down in batting, like so many young players when they get into the major leagues. Includes statistics for 1908-1910. Base Ball Series 400 Designs. Piedmont The Cigarette of Quality. Factory No. 25, 2d Dist. VA.), 1911
