Portraits of an 1865 baseball team...
Item # 216466
November 25, 1865
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, November 25, 1865 Certainly the prime feature of this illustrated newspaper is the very nice three-quarter page print captioned: "Champion Nine of the Atlantic Base-Ball Club of Brooklyn, L.I., 1865" showing named prints of each of the baseball players. There is a brief article on them as well titled: "The Atlantic Base-Ball Club." There are many other prints within this 16 page issue also, including a full pg. with 3 prints of: "The Oil Regions of Pennsylvania--Pit Hole City, Venango County..." and a ftpg. print of the: "Inauguration of the Monument Dedicated to the Fallen Heroes of Erie County, at Girard, Pennsylvania." Two unrelated leaves have clear, archival mends, otherwise very nice.
