Great, detailed article on the Empire Baseball Club...



Item # 672979

February 07, 1857

PORTER'S SPIRIT OF THE TIMES, New York, Feb. 7, 1857  Basically a sporting & theatrically themed newspaper with a great article inside headed: "Base Ball - Empire Club". This was just the 2nd professional baseball club in New York. The article takes a full column & begins: "This club was organized Oct. 23, 1854 & consisted at first of only 11 members. It has now upwards of 40 members. They meet for exercise on the ground at the Elysian Fields, Hoboken..." with much more. Nice content on the individual players, etc.
Sixteen pages, nice condition.

Item from Catalog 304 (released for March, 2021)...
