One of the best baseball prints...
Item # 672142
March 23, 1889
THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS, England, March 23, 1889 Note: this is just a portion of the issue, 8 pages but including the mentioned centerfold.
This terrific double page centerfold is captioned: "The American Baseball Players at Kennington Oval--Visit of the Prince of Wales". It includes some 19 scenes of various "plays" in baseball, and in additional has round portraits of the 18 baseball players involved. Among the two notables are Cap Anson and "Ward".
This centerfold measures 15 1/2 by 21 1/4 inches and is tipped-in so there are no binding holes. A terrific baseball item for display, & one of the more rare prints given the scarcity of this title. Very nice condition.
