Very nice and early baseball print...

Item # 673808

November 18, 1865

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Nov. 18, 1865  Although there are numerous prints within this issue by far the most desired is the half page vertical print showing a baseball game in action, and showing the full expanse of the field with crowd.
The caption reads: "Base-Ball Match Between the 'Athletics' of Philadelphia, Pa. and the 'Atlantics' of Brooklyn, N.Y., Played at Philadelphia, Oct. 30, 1865." There is also a related--albeit short--article on the game as well, headed: "The Base-Ball Match at Philadelphia."
Complete in 16 pages, very nice condition.
