Baseball print from 1866...

Item # 682522

December 01, 1866

FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, Dec. 1, 1866  The front page has a print of: "General Sherman's Reception on Board the U.S. Steamer Susquehanna".
But the more interesting item is the small print of: "Bernard J. Hanigan, Union B.B. Club, Morrisania, New York" which accompanies an article: "Our Base-Ball Illustrations" which has an article on Mr. Hanigan. It is rather rare to find illustrations regarding baseball in Leslie's.
Other unrelated prints within this 16 page issue. Good condition.
