Nice print of the Chicago baseball team...
Item # 630113
June 6, 1885
FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, June 6, 1885 Certainly the most notable print in this issue is the page 3 half page print captioned: "Illinois--The Chicago Baseball Club" showing the entire team in uniform, with a nice article on them on another page (see). This is a very nice print, and increasingly rare to find such early baseball images in the illustrated newspapers.
Other prints include a front page showing the parade of 60,000 Sunday school children in Prospect Park. Another print shows children dancing around the May Pole, plus a halfpg. montage of 7 prints of "Decoration Day at Antietam--Scenes on the Battlefield."
Sixteen pages, a library stamp at the top of an unrelated inside page, very nice condition.
